Default Proposal for "perfect" security

What do you think of the security proposal in this article, The perfect security defense is right under our noses?

I just can't see how this would work because it would need centralized cooperation. As it is, there is too much money to be made from scoring higher detection rates than a competing product so I can't see any of the top guys wanting to pool resources to this extent.

Also... "My absolutely must-have client function would be one that assists users in deciding whether they should install a particular program" is something we already have now but most folks just ignore the advice.

Tons of websites and files are already blocked by AV programs because they have not been scanned or added to their database and I can't see a centralized resource being any better because it still takes time, and who or what would be responsible for sorting out the false positives?

Somewhere on this site in my early days I stated that PC security begins and ends with a users mouse and I still hold the same opinion.
