I would not worry too much about this. We are not trying to make
identical code as Windows, we are trying to build the functionality that
windows applications require. For all we know, such piece of code might
be a leftover from Windows 1.0, that has been left in because also
Microsoft did not know what it would break if removed.

That is the perfect chance to put undocumented functionality in: find an
application that needs it, understand what and why, think out a solution
and implement it.
