write permissions other than the run as user

Is there a way or will there be a way to have an option to prevent the
execution of a file that is write-able by groups or others. It would be nice
that sudo verifies that if the file is writable other than by the run as
user, then it won't execute the file in fear that it may have been modified
by others. If a file is to be run as root but is write-able by other than
root, it is possible for malicious code to have been added.
