Using foreach on an object, protected/private members are skipped over.

Using current(), next(), prev(), end(), reset() on an object, private/protected members are accessible.

These functions entirely bypass object property permissions.

Using current() etc. with objects is deprecated as of PHP 8.1, so this will get resolved in due time. We're not going to change the behavior in the meantime.
