The rest sounds reasonable, but I doubt "requiring direct user interaction"
(by which I assume you mean requiring the user to click somewhere (anywhere)
in the page) provides any meaningful security benefit. I certainly think I'd
have a hard time convincing our security people of that!

"Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for
they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures
every day to see if what Paul said was true." [Acts 17:11]
