Missing variables in preconditon/postcondition rules

Did you know that if a variable that is referenced in a precondition or postcondition rule becomes missing or is mis-named, it will not cause that precondition or postcondition rule to fail? 

This just caught me on migrating a solution to a different client.  We failed to migrate a variable object, and the workflow still ran "fine", but took incorrect action because the variable was missing.

Should I report this as a product defect, or is this an expected behavior?  (Maybe I should ask support this question.)

I put together a very simple demonstration;
