Possible bug in Taxonomies?

I have the following part and type: Part: ShoePart, Type: Shoe

I added a TaxonomyField to Shoe type, and when exported it I see something strange in the exported metadata. I'm not sure if this is by design or if it's a bug. The functionality works as expected, but I had some trouble creating a recipe at first, until I noticed what was happening. 

When I added the TaxonomyField, it created a new part called "Shoe", attached to my "Shoe" type, and then added the TaxonomyFIeld to the "Shoe" part. 

So instead of this: 

Shoe (type)

     -> ShoePart (part)

    -> TaxonomyField.Brands (field)


I get this:

Shoe (type)

    -> ShoePart (part)

    -> Shoe (part)

        -> TaxonomyField.Brands (field)


by design or bug?

Fields are never attached to a type. They are always attached to a part. This looks fine.

OK -- thanks for clearing that up.
