Power Surge when Gas Pedal Released Under Boost?

I've noticed that if I suddenly release the gas pedal while under boost [usually while in the beginning stages of boost], the power continues for about one additional second - And, I continue to accelerate...

While only a second, it seems like an eternity... If I happen to push in the clutch to shift, the RPM's will jump [about 2k] like I still have my foot on the gas...

Is this normal? If so, what is the term/name for it????
