You will see it with Firefox.

Evan, what happens if you open the app on the DMG a second time, any warning then?

As far as I know, the only thing the OS does is what you point out, Evan, which is accomplished trough an extended attribute that Safari imparts on every file it downloads (if I'm not mistaken, you can test that by downloading a file from Firefox and opening it, I'm almost certain you're not going to see the warning in that case).
