Custom field and system field can have the same name

Hello, how are you?

I would like to report about something I discovered I suspect it is defect.

While creating, using and testing custom fields I discovered the following thing:
It is possible to create custom field that has the same name as a system field.

I did this at the create custom field while doing everything required else as this: format to list, linked to issue, and with added values. - then clicking the save button and the custom field was created

To my opinion you didn’t want this to happen, consider that I can’t create custom fields with the same name.

I would say the severity of the defect if this is one is medium\normal.

I would be glad to see reply regarding this matter.

have a good day
