About the execution of arbitrary executables: Python will let you do that, but there's a difference in code that is embedded in documents that are being passed around and the ability to add scripts to your application, which won't be spread.
As far as I understand, these scripts are connected to the program, not the produced documents.
Compare with plug-ins in your webbrowser. They can also do pretty much anything, which is the reason you wouldn't install just anything from anyone.
