I do. The name \textasciitilde itself, and the fact there is a separate 
command \~, seems to indicate that \textsciitilde (and similarly 
\texasciicircum and possibly the other commands from section 3.14 of 
usrguide.dvi) is meant to be used as a full-size character, and \~ as 
an accent character. It's only the absence of the former in CMR that 
has led to defining it based on the latter, apparently.
