[Pkg-nagios-devel] How to handle plugins with HTML output

I would like to solicit your opinion about #474967, where the bug
submitter complains that Nagios no longer passes HTML output of a
plugin verbatim to the web interface.

I am inclined to tag this bug "wontfix", as allowing HTML output to be
handed through from a plugin to the web interface might expose the web
interface to XSS and/or other attacks.

But alas, I don't know enough about web attacks to be an appropriate
judge for this.

Hence, I'd like to hear your opinion.
