This is not really intentional, as I had not noticed that there was such 
a command in Babel. The right way to do would be of course *not* to use 
Babel ;-) ... or to wait until "we" release the XeTeX-specific 
alternative to Babel (see the long thread on this ML starting last week. 
But I agree that both possibilities are not really helpful. In the next 
release I shall use \renewcommand and issue a warning in case babel is 
already loaded.

Thanks for pointing that out.
