I worked on Alexa in the past. It's an organization within Amazon with very diverse leadership and contributors, not the "tech bros" you would assume.

Aside from that, this is obviously undesirable behavior. That said, nobody at Amazon would specify this behavior explicitly - it's a bug and a missed use case. I suspect that your post hitting hn might find the eyes of Alexa teams, which could result in it being added to a roadmap and fixed in some number of months.
