It IS the intended behaviour..

What you've called "Declarative Security Options" ARE a bunch of specific 
attributes, from the System.Security.Permissions namespace.

From VS.NET help:

"Declarative security syntax uses attributes to place security information 
into the metadata of your code."

That is what the runtime will inspect to perform security checks.

Please, check the C# syntax for attributes and that namespace's tree of help 
topics, in the WEB, before continuing with your exploration in this subject.

Happy Hackings,
