Is Zero Install worth it? Is it safe to use or is it a security risk?

Thanks...

Zero-Install is safe to use, because it only installs programs into your home directory unless you specify otherwise.

This sounds very interesting for software testing purposes, but it seems that the available applications list is not very big. I wonder why?

I tried to find more threads about "Zero Install", but there is only one thread that specifically talk about it - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=751628

I also would like to hear some opinions from people actually using it. Not only about security, but also about integration, conflicts and so on...
