Yes, inasmuch as you didn't clarify that you perceive the configuration 
as an actual vector for attack, rather than an aesthetically displeasing 
feature. Instead you mention that it "barfs when accessed directly", 
which implied to me that you didn't recognize the potential threat. What 
I wrote was therefore not merely for your benefit, but for that of 
anyone who comes across this thread in the future.
