A brace only has a special shell meaning if it occurs by itself (as a word) or if there's a comma inside some braces. Bash _will_ automatically add

make completion happy).

pen pencil pencil

Wouldn't the latter case violate your assertion? Either way, it's kind of weird to special case expansion like that.
