g.remove deletes raster maps by default: could delete the wrong map

If I run g.remove with only the name of a non-existing map, I get this:
g.remove tmp Removing raster <tmp> WARNING: Raster map <tmp> not found WARNING: <tmp> nothing removed
This indicates that g.remove tries to remove a raster of name "tmp" by default. I am not sure this is good behaviour. What if the user meant a vector map and forgot to explicitely type "vect=tmp". In such a case, the wrong map might get deleted, instead of just an error message being issued.
Also, the synopsis for g.remove does not indicate that there is a default removal type.
