Command "": bug or feature?

I have GNU bash, version 2.03.0(1)-release (sparc-sun-solaris2.7).

Suppose the executable file /tmp/a.out exists (works for any name).

Then do:

# export PATH=/tmp/a.out:$PATH
# ""

As a result the command /tmp/a.out is executed.

Is this a bug or a feature?

Thanks for attention


ps: sorry if this message has been posted twice - I got confused.
