Thanks for the pointer to the right page.  If you read it says,under
Limited Warranty and Disclaimer

"WRI does not recommend the use of the Product for applications in which 
errors and/or omissions could threaten life, injury, or significant loss. "

My comment was, in any case, facetious.  Software vendors typically
make such disclaimers, though their legal relevance is perhaps
questionable if a dispute arises.  I am not a lawyer though.
