 It is intentional, because the thrown-away information in this situation
 is just the different meta_values.

 If you're querying just by meta_key, then you don't care if there are
 multiple meta_values.  If you're querying by both meta_key and meta_value,
 then there won't be multiple meta_values.  So either way it doesn't
