Is that mistball a feature?

OK. So I mentioned this in another case and as always was mostly off topic. In the selection interface we can do a sphere selection: click on a segment and drag while holding ctrl+shift keys. If you do not click a segment then a mistball is generated: the mist fills the center of the sphere making everything inside of it invisible. The question is this: is that a feature? (Not sure if that's not just a wine glitch.) I never figured a point to this, but with real data EDs I tried to use it. That works backwards, if the mist was created outside the ball ED puzzles should be easier. If that was a real feature it should be fast to implement a reversed version of it, and probably easier than all the new tools we're needing for such puzzles.
