IMHO, "ruin the surprise" and professional-level software development are oxymoronic and should never be used in the same paragraph.

The egg is silly, stupid, and should never have been approved by the committers.

From: John Blackbourn <johnbillion+wp at gmail.com>

it was
obfuscated in order to make the easter egg a little harder for people
to notice when it was added to WordPress. This was done so it didn't
ruin the surprise.
