Debating is good, it's one of the things that makes Free Software great!

I tend to classify software behaviour into three classes: stuff which 
works like that for a good reason, stuff which works like that for no 
(or a bad) reason, but can't be changed because is would break existing 
installs, and stuff which can and should be changed.

I think this stuff falls somewhere in the first two categories.
