By all means push for open source, and for being able to fix bugs, but don't make a non-issue into something more.
You're correct, it's not a bug by definition. It's working exactly as designed. That's not to say that it was designed in the best way possible, though.
I don't think anyone is clamoring for this to be fixed. It isn't the end of the world. It seems, from THIS perspective, to possibly be poor coding... but since I haven't actually looked at the code I can't really say that with any confidence. There could be a good reason for the way they've done it (harling already mentioned one possible reason).
At any rate, I think the point is that there are a lot of really intelligent people that support Waze, and these people wish they could help Waze fix the things that they sometimes have to put off in favor of fixing more important things.
