Is it boosting it to a level you feel is too high? Is it exploitative? Or are you just pointing out something that caught your eye?
Nope just a comment about a difference (for me as I only played 4E once or twice) from other editions.
I don't honestly worry too much about the exploitative aspects of a game, not much of a simulationist. It does however mean that a bow's damage is proportional to the accuracy of the shooter (more like a modern weapon than a medieval one) and I can also see that it makes the average fighter-type less of a threat at range than the average rogue which I don't really like.
