If we are talking about personal opnions here I think I rather
dislike the feature. I found that it slows down the menu 
browsing quite a lot. You have to wait for the menus to appear
and disappear for about half a second each time.

However, I think that if we wanted people to drop E and go for
AS this would be the decisive blow :)
