clone ups default branch --- bug or feature?

"hg clone" implicitly executes "up default" instead of "up tip". Is
this the intended behavior? In my work flow it causes periodic
annoyances (I usually expect a fresh clone to be at tip only to
discover that it's at default branch, and I forgot to do "hg up tip"),
so I was wondering if this was overlooked, or if there is a setting
where this is the preferred behavior.
