Yes, that's one of my concerns with the patch. Opening tap6 using the service may be a regression in some installations where limited users are not allowed to open the device. It also provides more access rights to the handle as its opened by SYSTEM: the driver sets it as all access for SYSTEM, RWX for everyone else when AllowNonAdmin is on. Not sure whether that matters in practice.
