This is kind of an interesting point, and it took a moment or two to wrap my head around where they were going with this, but I can see how it makes sense.

Well, it works fine for all practical purposes, and in this case you do want the implicit "Keep" to be turned off in the second case unless you want the e-mail to be left in the inbox.
