I think this is a feature.
For example, if I get some books from a library, I use the deadline to
mark when I absolutely must return the books. The schedule tells me:
Hey, I am near the library this day, so I *want* to do this today. 
I absolutely want both informations in my agenda.

        Meaning: the task (most likely a TODO item, though not necessarily) is
        supposed to be finished on that date. 
    Meaning: you are planning to start working on that task on the given

You can set a different deadline for each item, but "avoiding this" totally
means avoiding crucial information in your agenda.
