Power aperture a waste?

I've had this set for open and close of the blades however I've noticed that you cannot change this during filming in M or A mode - even confirms my fears in the manual. So my next question, what's the point in the function then? I can adjust aperture the normal way before recording (and since I'm not recording there will be no shake). I thought the whole idea was to be able to smoothy change aperture during filming? Any help appreciated!
