WP7 Required Device Capabilities

During submission of my app I notice something curious, listed under Required Device Capabilities I noticed that my application was stating that it needed access to owner identity & phone calls. Nowhere in my app do I access the namespaces required to list this capabilities.

After a bit of searching around I found out that it is infact the Ad control in my app that is requesting these capabilities. I think Microsoft should make some sort of distinction between what the application is using and what their own controls are using.

From an end user point of view my app looks like it's requesting the owner identity and access to make phone calls at will . It looks altogether very sketchy to say the least and is making me reconsider the inclusion of the Ad control in the app.
