Lightroom 5.2: What does the scissors symbol mean appearing when I press Alt during spot removal?

Using the spot removal tool in Lightroom 5.2 and pressing the Alt key the mouse pointer changes to a scissors symbol and you can somehow select a rectangle area.

Does somebody know what this feature is useful for? Or is it just a fragment of a future feature which has not been completely removed in this release?

okay, meanwhilst I found the answer for my question. It's the feature to remove multiple spot removal points. The scissors symbol is quite irritating (a rubber would be more intuitive)
