The only trustworthy lan is the one where I control every machine on it.
Most people I know in our environment bring their laptops to
super-untrusted environments most of the time in traveling and using
their machine at work. (the 'laptop' wireless and wired lans should be
treated as untrusted in most environments, as we usually see about a
worm or two a month on these networks) So while this holds true for
home users, I don't see this as true for enterprise and academic users
with nomadic machines like laptops.
