Yes of course. But then an alarm would sound, emails to management would be sent,  and the
violator of the corporate policy would be hunted down and dealt with accordingly...

The point is that the responsible parties are expected to NOT do such things in the first
place. I expect many shops are quite a bit less concerned with such things but I expect the
larger and more exposed companies will just not want to opt in, and may need to prove to their
betters that it is not only not enabled but the code has been actively removed or disabled.

I'm not trying to be a buzz-kill; I am  adding a parochial perspective.
