I'm late to the party here, but agree 100% with Steven's point that a
language cannot create security.
In Dylan, we called the need to declare to get dynamic-ness "pay as
you go". The programmer is made aware, by requiring a non-default
declaration, that the feature asked for costs more.
If you're counting votes, I vote for not dynamic by default. But my
reason is performance, not security.
