Frost trap causes aggo?

I don't why I just now noticed this but yesterday I was doing Klaxxi dailies, launched a frost trap at what I was fighting mid fight to proc L&L. After I had killed it and was moving on a herd of non aggro critters ran into the frost trap area and proceeded to charge me like id insulted their grandma... Not really a big deal but it was annoying to have to deal with.

Why exactly does frost trap cause aggro since it does no damage? I mean all it does is reduce movement speed. Is there a good reason for this?
Ice trap and Rod of Ambershaping aggro as well, which is particuarly annoying if I free nearby mobs to kill a rare, then have them wander over having been unfrozen, furious and ready to chew off my unaware behind.
