Probably no more concerned then having water on one's QR skewer. Which happens all the time. The best solution for water getting into things is periodic taking apart, cleaning and relubing. Especially after a wet ride.

Yesterday I did a tune up on a mountain bike which spends it's time out of a structure much of it's life. Water dripped out of it's headset as I rotated the bike on the work stand. The rider says he never rides in the rain but the bike has been rained on during it's down time. Besides the drain out I allowed I pulled the seat post, found it dry (poor original assembly not doubt by this and other aspects I found), then coated it with grease. The rider didn't want to approve any more internal service due to cost. Andy.
