AccessX - ignoring the state of NumLock key

I have noticed that which working with "MouseKeys" = on, the state of 
"NumLock" is ignored.
the Keypad keys operate on pointer movement and perform the click, drag 
and double-click regardless of the
state of NumLock. This is contrary to Windows.

I was under impression that MouseKeys option should allow the selection of 
NumLock state in which the Mousekeys
are used for Pointer / Mouse control and in the opposite state, the keypad 
can be used for its numerical entry task.

Is this is an overlooked feature?
