Not a bug, of course.

You can check on things like file existence in a number of ways.

First, you can put emacs-lisp in header args, for example:

This evaluates when there is a file called "elisp" in the default directory:

#+header: :eval (or (file-exists-p "elisp") "no")
#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :eval (file-exists-p "elisp")
"got it!"

and this does not (when there is no 'eeeelisp'):

#+header: :eval (or (file-exists-p "eeeelisp") "no")
#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
"got it!"

I've illustrated here with `:eval', but `:file' will also take such an elisp snippet.

Alternatively, you can define a function for `org-confirm-babel-evaluate' that will block evaluation.
