So yes, I did read the ammo oracle, but as far as I can tell it didn't address this.

The AE 223 with LC headstamps doesn't really mean anything super special, right???

Wasn't this addressed some time recently??  I can't find it in a search either.

Anyway, how soon 'til someone tells me it is bad stuff and I should send it to them for "proper disposal"??

You are correct.  Just LC Brass.  Still loaded to standard Red Box Velocities.  Good plinking ammo though and great brass.  Save it and load it or give to your buddies who re-load.

I've shot thousands upon thousands of LC04 and LC05 stamped AE 223. It's good ammo, no problems what so ever, and the brass is good too.

it's very good ammo and actually your lucky to get it with LC brass instead of regular FC brass (if you care about keeping your brass).  I save all of my 5.56 brass so when I find somewhere that has AE .223 with LC brass I buy as much as I can.

it doesn't mean the rounds are loaded to 5.56 pressure just 5.56 brass

I'm a reloader and noticed the new brass when I bought some recently for testing in a new rifle. The ammo shot good and I saved this brass. It was alot easier to prime than Federal's commercial brass. I've had trouble in the past priming Federal because the primer pockets are so tight. I would usually end up with deformed primers so I would just throw the Federal brass out instead of bothering with it. The new Federal LC brass is superb!
