While it probably does speed up focusing, I don't think that's the main reason.  How else would you have a sharp view in the LCD or EVF?  You move the camera and glance at the scene.  If the camera didn't refocus a bit, it'd be   blurry some of the time, maybe most of the time, unless it stopped down the aperture and made everything in focus, and then you wouldn't have the framing you need to judge what's in and out of focus if you wanted a wider aperture.  There's really not a better solution, I don't think.

But calling it the same as continuous focus, much less a design flaw, is just wrong.

It's kid of a lazy focusing.  Half-press in AF-C mode and the difference should be obvious.
