It cannot be fixed for Delphi mode only because a single copy of RTL is used for all compiler modes.
The current situation where out of range 'length' parameter is adjusted but 'index' out of range 
raises exception is simply self-inconsistent. It is also inconsistent with behavior of Copy for strings.
Adjusting index will neither cause any buffer overflows nor make code slower, so it should be fixed.
