doing something with /etc/security/access.conf

One of the admins here pointed out to me that /etc/security/access.conf
isn't actually referenced by the default PAM config at all.
I checked in bugzilla, and found bug #13245, and bug #19839, both of which
are basically resolved as "yep, that's not referenced by the default config
*Should* this file be included in system-auth (or at least login's and
sshd's pam conf), or is it just "yet another access control mechanism and
we've already got a dozen of those and that would just further confuse
I think that if not, the comment in the file should be changed to mention
that it's not used in the default Fedora/RH config.
Anyone have any opinion on this?
