No it isn't.

Please don't make assertions without a test to back them up; if you've found
a way to make Catalyst ignore such, it's almost certainly a bug in either

It sure as hell isn't intentional, as you can tell by the fact that the
string 'call' does not appear -at all- in Catalyst/Controller.pm
