It has worked this way for quite a long time.

SELECT privs on T1 have been granted to X

Y as the owner of T1, does not intend for X to share this data with Z, or anyone else.

Y has to explicitly allow X to share this data, which is why the 'grant option' is needed for X to allow Z to see the view V1.
