Well at any rate, even evil immortals don't muck around with a Quickening at stake. They all want it the effective way and don't want to waste it. Otherwise you'd see more assassinations by proxy.
One thing I always wondered about the series is how Quickenings are so destructive, and yet seemingly aren't noticed by mortals most of the time.

Low population density areas and no CCTVs.

Incidentally, are all the Immortals in the Highlander universe supposed to be foundlings? I know that Duncan MacLeod and Richie are both stated to be so in the TV show, but what about others?
They are in the TV series continuity, at least. Like you said, both Duncan and Richie were, and in one of the novels based on the show Duncan explicitly said that all Immortals were foundlings.
I haven't actually seen it, but in Endgame, isn't Connor MacLeod's mother strongly implied to be his natural/birth-mother, rather than an adoptive mother?

It's been a while since I saw that scene, but I believe she was being burned because she was thought to be a witch, due to her son rising from the dead, and her not denouncing him. While the killers are implying she might be the real mother (or in some way in league with the Devil), I think she simply loves him as her very own.

I somehow missed the whole foundling angle.
