There isn't really a lot of opportunity for security problems as
LaunchServices, the system component that determines which application handles
a given URL, will not allow a program to be run without human intervention
unless that application has been run before.  At the most this bug is an
annoyance, and I agree that it can be rather annoying at times.

As for my comment about the iTMS link maker -- it is unlikely that Apple will
intentionally change their browser in such a way as to break the behaviour of
another Apple product.  As you note, it is somewhat different in that it *is*
triggered by clicking a link, but the actual loading of the itms:// URL happens
on load of a normal HTML page, and is thus no different from the reduction that
I provided.
