I feel that anyone listed in your second paragraph has the potential to be unsafe. But not guaranteed.
However I do not see the correlation of students with a low GPA/test scores.
Apples and Oranges in my book. The best nurses I have met were ones who graduated at the low end of the class. Book smarts does not equal good clinical skills. I even know two 4.0 nurses with a previous masters that are very weak in their skills.
I see the concern but find that the two types of people described can not be compared.
On a side note: I do not see nursing programs in my area lowering their standards. I have been told recently that one program increased the GPA minimum.
