Kenneth and Tomas' posts are clear evidence (nay, proof) that it is
/not/ "expected behaviour" - or at least not universally so.

My personal guess is that light groups were originally implemented for a
use case where shadowing objects or media were a non-issue, and thus no
thought was given in that direction whatsoever. And that when the issue
first arose, light groups were well-established already, so that the
developers were reluctant to change the implementation, out of fear of
breaking existing scenes.
