--- Comment #1 from William A. Rowe Jr. <> ---
The behavior is correct, only REG and DIR entities can be allowed in the path,
other entities such as CHR files must be forbidden.

Treating these as not-found may lead to further iterations by mod_speling and
other modules attempting to work around the file name and potentially revealing
concealed files. E.g. /CON -> notfound -> /.conf (redirected by mod_speling to
a somewhat hidden file.)
