It's not a feature, it's a bug (if the full matrix isn't truly hermitian).

This won't be changed, but the assignment will be checked in debug mode.
The recommended way to assign the lower or upper triangular part of another
matrix to a hermitian matrix is using a hermitean_adaptor:
hermitean_matrix = hermitean_adaptor<matrix, lower/upper>
P.S.: Someone mentioned these days, that the correct spelling is hermitian.
This will be corrected soon.
