JavaScript in Facebook applications

Facebook (finally) allowed Java Script in FB applications outside of IFRAME
http://wiki.developers.facebook.com/index.php/FBJS
Among other things, I liked how elegantly they are creating namespaces separating different applications on the same page. Seems that it cold be a security hole here - it is possible to enumerate java functions on the page and "impersonate" user actions with another apps installed on the same page. Other than that - it's great that we can use JavaScript outside of the IFRAME sandbox.

Thanks for nice comment about the blog:)
For the Facebook, I am writing a custom app and thinking about (may be) some curriculum for a class on Facebook application development.
