[Qgis-developer] [QGIS-UX] Composer Legend items: what are the differences between "auto-update" and "update all" options?

I'm more missing a discussion about why in fact all loaded layers are  
displayed in the legend, and not only those activated in the canvas.
There is a reason why a deactivate layers: I want to produce a map only  
with those active ones = shown in the map.
So why do I have to manually remove unneeded (in my cases often dozens of  
layers) from the legend, or, even worse, delete them from the project just  
to re-add them when I produce the next map?

It would be much smarter to add just those active in the moment of  
creating the legend. In case I forgot one I need, I will be happy to add  
this one manually.

Or did I miss sth obvious?
