yes - anything that changes previous behavior can be "bad" for someone who expects exactly the same behavior as before.
that's why there is a config option for it that can be turned on or off. (and that's why the exact weight is configurable - often the benefits heavily outweigh the changed behavior and it's better to just adjust the defaults a bit - by for example giving the httpd user a higher weight.)
