R6 (and R5 ?): Does Fv mode make P/A/S/M obsolete ?

I was playing with Fv mode which appears to be very useful. All parameters (Shutterspeed, Aperture, ExpComp and ISO) can all be set individually and set to AUTO independent from each other.

So when S and A set to AUTO, it is in P mode, when only A set to Auto it is in Av mode, etc.

So why are the other modes still needed ? Now I use them as an extra C(ustom) mode like a virtual C4, C5, etc.

Any ideas on this ?
