Leaving aside the technicalities involved, would you feel that this is
a bad choice to take?

In other words, given that "fixing" this behaviour would probably
break /something/, yet clearly it is not in agreement wit the
documentation (i think because of optimisations) do you see any
serious problem with leaving it?

Im curious as to how people view the trade offs involved here.
