from my observation, yes, it is intentional.
it seems that Ubisoft, in its quest to make more money, intentionally made the game contact the server to check if the player is authorised to play the DLC or not.
one can only wonder what would happen to the game and the DLCs if Ubisoft ever decide to pull the support for SC:C or go under.
