Logic part type defined as PWR, allows GND net to connect to it?

If in Logic and build a part, in the pins tab I have a pin type of Ground. When adding connections in Logic, I noticed I can connect a Ground net to the Power pin. Is there a DRC check to make sure this can't happen?

 

It just stung one of my engineers, as he did not rotate the part and tied a GND net to the PWR pin, and PWR to GND pin. Rework now.

 

Why can we specify the Gate and Pin Type as something, only to be allowed to connect anything we want to it? Am I missing something? Is there a way to check for this?

 

Thanks,

Gary
