I can see that happening. Opening that is.

There is a fine line between too loose and just right.
Overtightening is hard.

On the other side of that coin, the axle is knurled and very
hard to remove when the QRs are open.

I'll order the retrofit kit deal but i'm not going to stop
riding. I've pounded the fork through many boulder
fields/rock gardens/drops without a hitch (so far).
