Xbox Music on Windows Phone might eat up your cellular data even when Wi-Fi is available

The problem seems to be in the way Xbox Music for Windows Phone has been designed. The app cannot switch to another connection once it starts the streaming process. And when you lock the Windows Phone screen, it turns off Wi-Fi connectivity.
So basically, when you lock your phone you’d have Xbox Music eating up the pricey data from your carrier plan and not Wi-Fi.
Of course, that is probably not a huge deal for many people, but for those who have to pay overages, or care about preserving their data longer, this could be a big annoyance.

Why does wifi get turned off when the screen is locked? Was this done by design? This doesnt matter to me cuz I mainly use wifi at home, but didnt I just read an article where WP users get access to millions of wifi spots?
