I have one criticism of that - it would break existing configurations
(where one has Allow xxxx Tags = yes, Convert Dangerous HTML to text =
yes for example).  Julian usually goes to pains to ensure that changes
maintain the existing behaviour for existing setting wherever possible.

I would think a better solution (from this point of view) would be to
extend the options for Convert Dangerous HTML to Text to include
keywords e.g.


and maintain the existing behavior for Allow xxx Tags.  You could allow
multiple keywords on the line, for example

Convert Dangerous HTML to Text = iframe objectcodebase

And keep 'yes' as a synonym for 'objectcodebase iframe form' with 'no'
or no values maintaining the existing behaviour for 'no'.
