Comment (by knutsp):

 I think this behaviour is as expected. Setting a page as a child of
 another does not change the parent in any way. Creating a page might also
 create a menu item on front, but setting it as a sub-page makes it
 ''less'' prominent than for a top-level page.

 If a user should not be allowed to publish a page as a sub-page of
 another, then the user should not have the capability to publish a page in
 the first place. Publishing is publishing.

 To protect the front navigation menus, one should use the menu system
 without automatically adding new pages to any in use on the front.
