I think it's useful to keep it, especially if it already works now.  A
file may need auditing for multiple overlapping reasons, and it's nice to
get consistent results in that case.

It's a feature beyond what CAPP/LSPP requires and it's only available to
admins, so there is no need to specifically test these combinations if
you're just going for CC compliance.
