    In an ideal world, yes, but in reality Deno's permission model is quite hard to use so many libraries require disabling a lot of it, sometimes everything like puppeteer. Other example is the library I maintain: it requires --allow-net since you can't whitelist a domain and all its subdomains, just a domain.

    I agree that semantics for that is complicated, but I think the adopting browser permission model is bad because browsers have per-site isolation but how Deno is going to do that for applications that require executing external binaries? Also, even if you would whitelist some binaries, there are Deno packages, such as deno-puppeteer, which don't list what permissions it requires, instead it instructs users to enable all permissions using -A. By the way, why just -A? Why not --unsafely-enable-all-permissions (like Chromium's --unsafely-treat-insecure-origin-as-secure)?

    Maybe people forget about this permission system because either are not experienced with Deno or because they just slap -A on eveything. Some packages such as deno-puppeteer even put it in all examples without even adding a note about its risks.
