Can't connect node from AO output to invert grayscale?

Probably just a stupid mistake on my part, but I can't seem to connect the output of an AO node to the input of an invert grayscale node. It just simply won't allow me to do it. Surely AO outputs as a grayscale? Anyways, I tried using a regular invert node and it still didn't work. I wanted to see what would happen if I tried converting to grayscale, so I connected the AO node to a convert to grayscale node and, as I suspected, it added a gradient map conversion just before the grayscale conversion, so it was a grayscale, but it wont allow me to connect it to the invert grayscale. I found a workaround by connecting the AO to a levels node, and then connecting that to the invert grayscale (which I could've done using the levels, but hey, I'm lazy). Anyways, I just want to know if I'm doing something wrong, or if this is simply a bug.
