Why does the editor change the code represention of an emoticon?

We recently found some strange behavior in Confluence 6.0.7:

If the user inserts an emoticon e.g. the red cross image to a page and saves

the page it's represented as

<ac:emoticon ac:name="cross" />

If later on the user updates the page and saves it, the emoticon code is changed to

 <img class="emoticon emoticon-cross" title="(error)" src="https://iwiki.eur.ad.sag/s/en_GB/7104/0e21dd459285e7b3b5e0deaa2193b2af8bbb7c8b/_/images/icons/emoticons/error.png" alt="(error)" border="0" />

Problem is: Our users use tables with emoticons in Confluence pages steering other applications that parse the page for those codes and act about it.

Changing the representation makes this harder!

Is this behavior intended or is it a bug?
