This definitely is not true for my installation of version 6.0

If I type ToPackedArray in a fresh session it is colored blue
just like any other symbol I type that has not been defined. If
I execute Get["Developer`"] in another cell, the color
immediately turns from blue to black, indicating ToPackedArray
now has a definition.

This dynamic changing of color for symbols is one of the
features of version 6 I find quite handy. It has greatly reduced
problems I have with mis-typing something.
