Repairing tile over kerdiboard

It's been a while since I've posted here but I have a question for the pros.
I'll be honest I'm not a big fan of the Schluter shower systems but I have done a handful of them, all with Kerdiboard. One aspect I've always questioned was the integrity of hanging heavy glass doors or plumbing fixtures on tile glued to a 1/2" piece of foam. Even with the proper blocking.
Anyways, I did a shower over the winter that was prepped entirely by another installer because I didn't have the time.
We used 12x36" tiles on the walls.
A month after screwing the glass door hinges to the wall (installed by glass company) one of the tiles has cracked in all directions away from the three screws.
Now I'm not really concerned right now with how or why, I'm more curious if anybody has done repairs over Kerdiboard? What is it like trying to pull tiles off of it. I'd say it was done sometime before Xmas using Bostok Ditraset.
