Just trying to put them in context.  Extreme measures like separate
disconnected networks are appropriate for some small number of
people and places. For the rest of the world, that and other expensive,
time consuming measures have to be balanced against productive uses
of that money and time.  The company where I work probably wouldn't
have survived without very low-budget computer services that did
not interfere with our developers' ability to make rapid changes.
We are now part of a larger company with more resources and have
replaced some equipment and procedures where it makes sense now
that the context has changed but there is still always a tradeoff
between how much security you add and how much it interferes with
your work.
