The "right" to know who's an NPC?

Do players have a "right" to know which characters are NPCs are in a game?

In the LJ game I'm running, one of my players insists that players have "a right to know whether the character [they're] interacting with is a PC or NPC." To be honest, I've never heard of that "right." Frankly, I'm confused - in an online game, where I've specified that the action is going to be character-driven, does it really matter if a player knows whether a character is a PC or an NPC?

Personally, I'd say it's less a "right" than a "privilege," but that's just me. ;)

EDIT: The other players are advocating that I *not* reveal which characters are NPCs, btw.
