If the customer (i.e. the corporate) can define which applications are  
launched, then, the end users can only (absent a bug) launch  
applications which the environment owner provides for them to launch.

The end user launches a pre-defined application, and so, whilst not a  
sysadmin, this seems no different to clicking a icon on a desktop,  
which was pre-installed by the company for them to use?
