(what's the paste() for?)

...and it is a design choice of course. Notice that operators are not boldfaced either, e.g., in text(x=3,y=3, quote(bold("x"==2*a + b ~~ "x = 2a+b"))) you get the = and the + in non-bold in the first part (granted, a bit hard to see for =). As I recall it, LaTeX does similarly unless you jump through a couple of hoops. It is intentional, but if you try to do it otherwise you'd run into trouble with the absense of a bold symbol font.
