Do you think this is a security risk and if not is it a bad UI decision?

 From the process point of view, it does look a little obstructionist: 
"No, we won't discuss it in Bugzilla"; "No we won't discuss it in 
fedora-devel either". Reminds me of the joke: "Lunch on Tuesday? Sorry, 
can't do it on Tuesday---how about Never? is Never good for you?". I 
understand your point that the concerned Anaconda developers may simply 
not see the traffic, but they do know about the Bugzilla entry and this 
discussion on the devel list, so I hope that they could find it in their 
heart to put out their argument in the forum with the largest possible 
audience which at the moment seems to be here.

Big changes deserve more explanation and outreach from the developers, 
not just dropping them in everyone's lap.
