There's no cover letter field when sending a job application. Is it a bug?

We recently tried sending a job application for: https://www.odesk.com/jobs/Microsoft-Excel-Bluetooth-Data-Import-into-existing-VBA-Project_~018e065d... However, there's no field for the cover letter. As per the screen shot below: http://www.evernote.com/shard/s38/sh/82874f45-006d-4e29-9b3c-3118edccbfad/8e0b38775cefb6b5b143c08951... Is this intended behavior? The issue persists regardless if we apply via individual freelancer account, or as agency.

I had the same question but found out it's a new feature. The client can choose to not accept cover letters. I think the clients are supposed to ask specific questions about their jobs but I've seen one or two where there was nothing.

It's supposed to be a "feature" There are some cases where there are no boxes at all, nothing to write on, which is not really good since there's no way of asking questions to clients.
