Constituent Update Batch allows Major giving prospect constituency end date to be updated when the constituency edit form does not

When trying to end date a Major giving prospect constituency through the edit form and there exists an opportunity with a response pending status, the following message is thrown:

"This constituent has a response-pending opportunity and therefore must remain a prospect."

When end dating a Major giving prospect constituency through a Constituent Update Batch, this message is not thrown.
We are currently evaluating this issue for a fix in a future service pack.

Steps to Duplicate

1. Create or find a constituent with a prospect plan that has an opportunity in a response pending status.
2. On the constituent record, go to the Personal Info tab followed by the Constituencies tab.
3. Edit the Major giving prospect constituency and add an end date to it.
4. Click Save and receive the message, "This constituent has a response-pending opportunity and therefore must remain a prospect."
5. Create a Constituent Update Batch and add the constituent from Step 1 to it.
6. In the Constituencies field in the batch, add an end date to the Major giving prospect constituency.
7. Validate and Save and close the batch.
8. Commit the batch.
