Where is SEC_IMAGE AllocationAttribute ?

I may be asking a stupid question but I believe that AllocationAttributes such as SEC_IMAGE are not present in the minifilter callbacks such as AcquireForSectionSynchronization.
If I am correct than this is pretty sad for security developers, since you can run a process that has been opened with PAGE_READONLY but with SEC_IMAGE set.
Not going into too many details but such techniques are already used in process doppelganging attacks and similar class of attacks.
I am wondering, if I am right, is anywone from MSFT going to add these flags in some patch to Filter Manager ?
