    Nah:

    Extended system attributes
    Extended system attributes are used by the kernel to store sys-
    tem objects such as Access Control Lists and Capabilities. Read
    and write access permissions to system attributes depend on the
    policy implemented for each system attribute implemented by
    filesystems in the kernel.

    It's not *that* broken...
