After review by the development team, it has been determined that this issue is related to a known limitation with the software that lies outside of Esri's control. The issue's Additional Information section may contain further explanation.
This behavior has been the same when creating layer files since 8.0, and will not be updated in ArcCatalog or ArcMap.
