Resources folder on mac, and the good old days

I am following this with interest because, as I have previously lamented, I would like to give away apps to colleagues without the huge, incomprehensible headache of certificates, signing and notarising etc.

I want to make absolutely sure that I understand it correctly, that a player app which was enabled to run on a machine (either by user or the more formal method) could be designed to list and run any number of stacks distributed as stacks, and placed in a designated folder or sub folder.

If correct, doesn’t that:

A/  Enable distribution and updating of any LC ‘app’ simply by the prospective user dropping it into the correct folder?  (AKA ‘the good old days')

B/  Undermine the fundamental intention of certification in the first place?  (Personally, I would trust Livecoders, and indeed often run posted stacks without a second thought, but what if Richmond* went over to the dark side?)
