That's not so much an issue with the idea of Augmentation, it was injected into the plot the same as the drug addiction. If it's the case, however, yeah, that's a legitimate concern, but its not one that's ever going to appear in a debating hall, so the public won't be able to weigh it up with the rest of the points. If, however, someone deduced it was possible, then it's a design issue, not an issue inherent in ALL augmentations. These ones have the issue, Augmentation as a whole does not.
Besides, the real problem is Dogmentation, since it's not patented yet.
