Why did Mal seem surprised when she learned that Cobb performed an inception on her?

Mal is simply a projection of Cobb's own subconscious.  The fact that she didn't seem to know that Cobb planted the seed of the idea in her mind tells me that Cobb hadn't ever admitted to himself what he had done.  He was aware that Inception was possible, as he said as much when Saito first proposed it.  This scene shows Cobb's own catharsis, he was finally able to admit what he had done and let go of his guilt.
