That is true for d.vect, but it is used for d.what.vect, without this
checkbox and option nobody can use GUI form.

Yes, it must be there at least until GUI form works on all platforms. In
GIS manager there is 'vector layer' which is using d.vect and
d.what.vect, it is not just d.vect.

-e Open form in edit mode.
Also this option is important.

Of course it does. PS maps generated from GIS Manager use this parameter.
