Giving delegation role to a user without any roles is not working.

Steps Taken In OOB:
- Created a workflow added an approval activity, added the Approver as the "Manager of the Requestor" ( ${request.requested_for.manager} ).
- Added 2 delegates to the manager of the requestor say ' X ' &' Y '.
' X ' delegate has roles. ' Y ' delegate without any roles.
- Ordered the item and observed that the approval was not created for the delegate (Y) who doesn't have any role.
- Observed that it is an expected behavior.
