Notably, you've never answered this question. When asked, you simply
assert "it is helpful", without citing a rationale, without providing
use cases and without pointing to any evidence of anyone anywhere in
the real world actually benefiting from this feature.

The onus is on you to demonstrate the benefits. If you can't, the
feature should be scrapped.
