Yes, that is something i'd be concerned about too. Microsofts feedback 
contained much more than technical issues regarding the Access-Control 
spec so in order to create issues based on that someone would need to go 
through and actually try to understand the issues and pick out the meaty 
parts.

Having issues like "AC needs to be secure by design" wouldn't be useful. 
(not saying anyone would create issues like that)
