Delete base artifact when copy has been included in module - error

I create a feature

I create a module

I include the feature in the module

I then try to delete the original base feature (not the included copy inside the module)

I get error

Operation cannot be completed: '' started editing the artifact at ''. You cannot delete it until they have finished.

The prevention seems sensible but the message is a confusing.

Is the prevention intended behaviour?
