### Does Gazebo 7 Ignore the SDF Pose Element for Fixed Joints?

I believe the answer is yes but wanted to make sure. My SDF joint definition is as follows:

<joint name='myJoint' type='fixed'>

I can change the <pose> element to be any arbitrary value and Gazebo 7 would show the robot as if the joint still had zero pose. Is this expected?
