 Thats exactly the thing.. It IS the front page, A Static frontpage is the
 front page, So are its paged components.. They're part of the front page.

 is_archive() IS a special template tag, just as much as is_front_page(),
 is_front_page() was introduced to tell a static page apart from a posts-
 home-page, And thats all, Not for the very first page of the static page..

 If you're using a paged static page as your front page, AND you want to
 modify only the first page of it, You know you want to exclude it via
 is_paged() - exactly what you're doing..

 Thats just my opinion.. And i dont see the point in changing it since its
 been this way since the start..
