It is intended. vi-backward-kill-word works in a vi compatible manner
both in terms of word endings but also includes refusing to delete past
the cursor position where the current insertion started. Did you want
that behaviour? Vim relaxes that unless configured otherwise.

No. But you can just bind Ctrl-W to backward-kill-word:

  bindkey '^W' backward-kill-word
