I would call this an implementation detail, and definitely not call
it a bug.  All it means is that working resources have more properties
in your system than the standard requires.

Also, since that is exactly what we would have done if we had
supported working resources on our workspace-based server (basically,
just allocating the working resources in some system-maintained
workspace), I consider it a very sensible implementation choice (:-).

Cheers,
Geoff
