[wp-hackers] deactivate a blog (site) at network

To make it clear, if it wasn't up to now.
I'm about to test a WordPress 3.0.1 Multisite configuration. I'm testing a main blog with 2 additional sub blogs now.
Both sub blogs were created as type of folders instead type of sub domains.

Now I went to the sites overview and press "deactivate" for the 2nd sub blog. 
What I now expect (as known by plugins when they will be deactivated): The sub blog is not longer accessible by the WWW using a browser (similar like a deactivated plugin can't modify any longer my output, it simply not reachable).

But the result is, that this blog can normally been browsed and read as it hasn't been deactivated.

So my question is, what is the purpose of activate/deactivate a blog?
Does it matter, if they are sub domains or "directories"?

Kind regards

Is anybody able to explain, what's the purpose of deactivating a blog/site in
multisite environment ?
My expectation was, that the blog is not longer accessable from outside but all
browser still able to get the pages and posts of this deactivated blog!
The WP 3.0.1 configuration has been defined using sub folders instead of sub
domains, if it makes a difference.
I would assume, that this is a bug isn't it?
