stty settings override ~/.inputrc?

A complaint was raised on the cygwin list, where the user had default
terminal settings (lnext set to ^v), and this line in their ~/.inputrc:
"\C-v":paste-from-clipboard
This report is against bash-3.0.16/readline-5.0.

Within a single line, hitting \C-x\C-r to re-read ~/.inputrc lets ctrl-v
paste, but as soon as the user hits enter, readline is resetting the
binding of ctrl-v back to quoted-insert (to match the stty settings of
lnext).  Is this intentional behavior?  It would make more sense if
~/.inputrc settings overrode stty settings, rather than stty settings
being forced onto key bindings every time the prompt is redisplayed.
