I'm puzzled as to decide if this is a bug or not. It has some obvious security implications. IMO, things are fine as they are, but I thought I'd seek a second opinion.

Here's an opinion: the current implementation is correct; a calculated member should not grant access to everyone implicity.

I'd also hope, but you can verify, that the rollup definition of the Role (rollupPolicy=) is also honored in the Calculated Member?  You'd have to see on a member grant not a level top/bottom grant but that's a very edge use case that may or may not have been tested.
