Google trusts you too much

Google announced 5 major security updates for Chrome extensions.  One of the updates mentioned that "the company will also start closely monitoring extensions with a remotely hosted code to spot malicious changes quickly."  You mean extensions are currently allowed to insert remotely hosted code?  And remotely hosted code that apparently isn't monitored too closely? Man, that is kind of frightening.
