Script codes

I'm sure you have seen the latest bulliten from Bev Harris, quoting Jim March.
(personally I was a tad dissappointed she elevated the physical access and limited Eprom Attack to the same plateau as the general purpose Hursti attack on the diebold systems. It lowers the importance of the Hursti attack. But she does have a small point of sorts)

In any case the Diebold attack was based on "interpreted" code being allowed on the vote cards. That's something I expect is becoming ubiquitous since object oreinted data storage lends itself to that.

She has said interpreted code is not allowed (in the past pointing to other places it is found, like font files). Is this really true? Where is this prohibition.

And how does that suit OVC which uses python (or accupol which uses Java). Is it just a limitation to specific places script codes can be found?
