The docs are fairly explicit about the intended use case: "Mark the test as an expected failure. If the test fails when run, the test is not counted as a failure." (from http://docs.python.org/3/library/unittest#unittest.expectedFailure)

Nothing there about being able to call some other function and have doing so incidentally mark your test as an expected failure (which I actually consider highly *un*desirable behaviour)
