We (re-)added the capability and the criterion because it was heavily
requested. anaconda 'new UI' didn't let you do this for a while, and a
lot of people complained. It is intended for people who maintain their
own custom multi-OS bootloader config and do not want the OS to mess
with it.

I'm not sure if what it does for UEFI installs is intentional or has
really been thought about, so there could be scope for changing that,
and clarifying the release criteria expectations about it. But both the
behaviour and the desire for it were fairly clearly established for
BIOS installs.
