It seems hard to assume it wasn't, especially because it's not a feature of any other type (without implicit conversion explicitly defined...that's sounds kind of awkward). Kind of hard to end up with the one exception on accident. And of course, being Microsoft, with their huge love of never ever breaking compatibility unless there is no other way, even if it wasn't intentional, it's not likely to ever change now ("What if someone's code depends on it? Can't inconvenience those people using it on purpose!").
