MIDI panning; MSP tutorial 22 question

Shouldn’t the gain remain about flat?
I could easily be missing something here; please enlighten me. A test patch (at least I think it tests) is here:

Oh, I get it now. The sum of the two outputs squared is always 1 or very close to it.
The higher combined power at center panning is what creates the impression of the sound source moving in an arc.
