No. If the user were lacking the right permission, you'd get an 
Unauthorized exception. A ForbiddenAttribute error is *always* the sign 
of either

a) missing security declarations for something that should be allowed to 
be accessed

b) or you're accessing something that's you really shouldn't be accessing.
