Uhm, not exactly. That subkey is only searched if ScriptInterpreterSource is
set to "Registry-Strict", and it will fail if an interpreter isn't found.

The case they warn for is when it is set to "Registry", in conjunction with
ScriptAlias, in which case all requests will cause execution of the
application associated with each file. This might be IE, Photoshop, WinZip,
Notepad, or whatever. In this case it will not search the special registry
subkey "ExecCGI", but the standard one.
