Not a bug or a secret. Good business. Done on Purpose. Here is importance:

When contacted about the matter, Verizon confirmed to him that the device was indeed fully unlocked.

This is a tremendous boon to US customers, who have in the past had to argue long and hard for the privilege of detaching their iPhones from their primary carrier's network.
So...done by Verizon, and a GOOD thing.

Verizon's unlocked-out-of-the-box stance frees their customers from having to essentially ask permission from their carrier (or resort to complex jailbreaking plus unlocking shenanigans) to use their devices abroad, or to take their devices to another carrier when their contract time is up.

Coupled with the AT&T iPhone 5's limited LTE frequency range, this is yet another reason to recommend new prospective buyers look at picking up an iPhone from Verizon instead of AT&Tif you don't like the Verizon service, you can always pop in an AT&T SIM and switch back to the other carrier.
