What would stop the program from adding the registry key itself when placing 
the item in the startup folder, or wherever else?

Sounds like it's just asking if it should ask.

I'm not really sure what you could do as a user that a program couldn't just 
override and do itself. Besides, users might not know whether what's being 
installed into an auto-start key/folder is necessary, deny it for "safety 
concerns", and have a broken installation.
