Must lighting or convenience receptacles in bedroom closets be AFCI protected?

Whether bedroom closets are part of the bedroom is a judgement to be made by the AHJ. However, it is clear that the intent of 210.12 is to provide protection for the entire bedroom. When the closet is an integral part of the bedroom, it would be reasonable for the AHJ to call for the closet wiring to be protected just as other parts of the bedroom.
