Well, it is extremely useful to have character format definitions that
leave certain issues undefined.
The bug (old, indeed) is, that the "as is" used here is the same "as is"
that is used for redefining formats (like for para or table formats).
It is necessary to keep this in mind when working with character
formats. You always have to put everything in that is intended to be
My advice: Make character formats as simple as possible, by defining
only the new color (here = Blue), or a new font size, or new weight. The
less properties are defined the better the format can be used.
