I don't argue that.

People might be able to argue in favour of that (voice and video is 
*somewhat* dangerous), but the discussion at the start of the thread was 
that screencasting is *somewhat more* dangerous.

Anyway, the point you started off with was

"As I have mentioned before, based on the attack vectors related to 
extensions, I expect extension installation to be disabled in enterprise 
environment. This will render screen sharing in its current form unusable."

My point was that I don't think that this argument is valid, because its 
premise (that extension installation will be disabled) is not true.
