I'm not very good with risk assessments, feel free to update the above
as you want.  The reason behind "none to low, local, passive" is that we
only have one package relying on Mozilla NSS - RPM.  If it was not the
case and we had any services that would take input from the net, I'd
assign "none to medium, remote, active" since it would then possible to
forge CA certs and alike.
