To allow the derailleur to swing closer to the center point of the tube many manufacturers indent the frame a few inches up from the bottom bracket. Many types of frames and many different manufacturers use this design - be it mountain, road, or cyclocross. Another place you may see some indents can be on the chainstays to allow more room for the cranks/chainrings. So don't worry, the dent is just there to give more clearance, Clarence.
