From the Help page for Arg:
* Arg[z] is left unevaluated if z is not a numeric quantity.
Therefore what you get is exactly the expected behaviour but I admit
that right now I do not know how to extract the argument of a complex
number symbolically (I would try a pattern matching but I can not make
aworking example for you right now).
