[Zope] Deleted role and user's assigned role behavior.

Just wanted to check if this is a bug or a feature:
All this following is made programatically with a combination of DTML
and python external methods.
I add a Role, let's call it "role-1" and I assign it to say "user-1",=20
Later on, programatically I delete "role-1" with a :
<dtml-call "manage_defined_roles('Delete Role', REQUEST)">
Having passed the "roles" list in the REQUEST with the "role-1" I want
to delete. "role-1" is succesfully deleted from the place (tree level)
where it was previously added.
Now, it happens that if I view a method which has:
It still displays the "role-1" role as one of the assigned roles to the
user (the AUTHENTICATED_USER, i.e. "user-1" in this example). How come
is "role-1" still assigned to the user even it was deleted (the role).?
If I again, manually or programatically add up again "role-1" at the
same level it was originally entered, it happens that "user-1"
automagically gets "role-1" as one of its assigned roles.
Now, the question is: Is this a bug or a feature ? I would have
expected Zope, either to:
1.- Do not allow role deletions if there are users with that role
2.- Delete the role with no further questions and delete all assignments
to any and all users that have that role assigned at role deletion time.
3.- A more complex combination of validations.....
Any comments on the above behavior are appreciated.
Thanks and best regards.
