I agree that you can divide the question
  1. Is a nut allergy a legitimate "complaint?"
  2. Should it be said with tact and politely?
I think the answer to the first is yes to everyone, equally
I think the answer to the second is yes, but significantly more so when it comes to NRSA

Because the first is about the person (NRSA shouldn't matter - we're all human beings). The second is about a passenger (no longer about life and death; it's about approaching other passengers).
