It's been like that since the first 16bit PCB Protel.  I don't think
that not enough people use the arc extensively enough.  Protel seems to have
decided to leave it the way it is...

    My big thing about the ARCs is after deleting, or editing them, they
leave these invisible flash points on your PCB which create weird obstacles,
or if these invisible points have nets, they cause the autorouter to seek
them out and create additional traces.
