The short answer is no. The OIF bikes do not have any issues with collecting condensation or blow-by in the frame tubes. This was an extreme case. I think the cooked battery had something to do with it. You cannot pull more moisture out of the atmosphere than is available. The lower tubes are essentially sealed to outside atmosphere. The amount of water vapor available would be minimal. What collected in the frame tubes was not exactly water as evidenced by the type of corrosion that was caused. I think it was part battery acid.
Just a caution. I would test the integrity of that lower frame tube as that doesn't look like just surface rust. And if you did have part sulfuric acid inside the frame tube the insides will be compromised too.
