How would someone using just the keyboard access this functionality?
Frankly: I don't care! And I don't think that the absence of a keyboard equivalent implies that one can or should not support a UI feature.
Sure, its nice and convenient if there exists a keyboard equivalent but there will always be some UI capabilities that are not available when using different input methods. How would you e. g. mimic a "long-press" or "hovering" over some item (which typically brings up some hint) using a keyboard? Or drag-and-drop?
Or how would you draw a line (or a box) in a drawing program other than by defining the first point by pressing and the second by releasing the mouse button? I don't know of any keyboard equivalent for such gesture, either.
