[PD] "dsp..." messages into inlets (!!!)

This must have been discussed in the list before, but I couldn't find
anything in the archives because it's difficult to generate a
meaningful set of keywords for this......

In a merely fortuitous way, I found out that if you send a message
starting with the keyword "dsp" into an inlet of a subpatch or
abstraction, it is not passed through the inlet.

Attached is an example, i.e.:

[     (
[pd mysubpatch]

where the subpatch contains:


If you write "dsp something" in the message and click it, the message
won't be printed!!!! (while any other message will)

It seems like the inlet itself "catches" it...

I don't know what [inlet] is supposed to do with messages starting with "dsp".
I thought it may perhaps switch~ off the subpatch, but it doesn't.

Is this a bug or a feature?
Is it documented somewhere?
