You're certain? When I tested mine last night on the 2nd intermittent setting, at 60mph, there was a non-zero delay. At 61mph, zero delay (ie continuous low speed).

And with drive by wire cars, it wouldn't be unusual to have the pedal programmed for flywheel torque demand for manual transmissions, and road wheel torque demand for automatics so even if the gas pedal position never changed, the throttle plate could still change.
The reference to euro cars is that the upper trim levels in the UK in fact DO have rain sensing wipers on Mirage 2 and Mirage 3, and that would give the behavior you've described. But any rain sensor I've seen so far is fairly obvious on the widshield close to the mirror, and if we had them, I'm sure it would be listed as a feature.
