Yes, I don't think it's a bug. I think they're increasing screen real estate for web pages. They also switched around the location of the bookmark and share buttons, which is harmless but odd. Lots of warnings out there not to install 8 on the iPad 2, as well as any iPhone before the 5. It may be possible, but so was running System 7 on a Mac Plus. Doesn't mean you should do it.
