Why do you say that?  The current behaviour is consistent and well
defined:

a[x] == a[int(x)]

We certainly can't change it now (just imagine all the code out there
that will break); but I personally don't think it is a big problem.

On a somewhat related note, you may also be interested in the PEP at

http://docs.python.org/whatsnew/pep-357.html
