I've always considered it a feature. :)

From the 'bible':

:feature: /n./  1. A good property or behavior (as of a
   program).  Whether it was intended or not is immaterial.  2. An
   intended property or behavior (as of a program).  Whether it is
   good or not is immaterial (but if bad, it is also a
   {misfeature}). [...]

Moreso 2 than 1. If you don't want it, have OLC refuse to make them for
non-imps, or filter them out (with a warning) when loading the database.

Although I wouldn't think its a misfeature, it may be a misbug depending
on the thoughts of the person who originally designed that magic part.  All
in all I don't see too much of a reason to change it.
