If you don't like it you can change that radio button in the security preferences to "Anywhere" and be done with it.
Hell, I've had APT warn me that software from a different repository wasn't signed and prompted me to override it before proceding with installation.

Why the Fax Machine Refuses To Die
So what you're saying is that fax machines have been around almost since the dawn of man since apparently there weren't any 55+ year old accountants or bookkeepers around who needed to be taught how to use this newfangled witchcraft known as fax machines when they were invented and made their way into offices around the world?
