I don't believe it's been edited (or I haven't noticed such an edit). However on a subsequent re-read, I can see the author's usage of the term "exploit" is more specific to his example below (the Google Maps attack demo).

While I'd still argue it's "working as intended" (for better or worse), he is at least calling this specific demonstration an exploit rather than the feature as a whole. So I'll step back from that position, at least part way.

Thank you for the clarification on that point.
