Share Until Death Transport issue

Tonight something odd happened that I believe could be fixed or adjusted:

My ACU was in a transport that a teammate had given me earlier in the game and my teammate happened to die while I was in flight. The acu exploded, and then so did my ACU.

I don't think this should be.

I believe the ACU should override the condition and allow the transport to remain alive, or if anything, after a set amount of time this should be the case. This seems really silly to be wasted by proxy because one of your teammates got wasted, even if they are quite a distance away.
