[Qgis-developer] Highlighting feature with 'Identify' tool

is there any special reason that after using 'Identify' tool on polygon 
feature, it is highlighted by its outer shape (whole polygon extent 
area) rather than by exact geometry like it is done by 'Select' tool ?

1. Draw multi-polygon feature containing few holes.
2. Click on polygon using 'Identify' tool. Whole polygon including holes 
is highlighted.
3. Click on polygon using 'Select' tool. Exact polygon shape is 
highlighted (without holes)

I think, current behavior is quite confusing, when You have big 
polygons, containing holes where another polygons exists.

I seams, there is related ticket on this [1].
