Of course you have to validate them just like any other code.  The good
thing is that once you've done that your toolbox becomes a little bigger.
Macros also tend to be small code snippets, so it's rather unusual that
there is a bug in one, but it still happens.  You also need to keep in mind
that while a trusted and heavily used macro is unlikely to have a bug, it
can happen, just as with any tool.
