It is certainly an intended feature, William. Always was since load 
sensor were introduced in the late 90s.

The thought behind it was that you might have central system management 
services which maintain host level information. You can then put the 
load sensor on the system management server instead of having 1000s of 
hosts query it. But you can use it for other stuff as well, of course.
