Yes, it is now intended for two reasons. First, it could be confusing
for user if some maps were missing from input list. Second is
technical, to get list of layers in vector map may be time consuming,
the info must be read from the map (which was not the case with < 2.11
where only layers in canvas were listed).

All vector maps are listed in map input widget, but only the types
specified by typemask will be offered for selection (if there are more
than one) under the input widget. If selected vector does not contain
any layer of specified type, a warning dialog opens when module is

valid xml. In any case, test well before you create pull request and
after it gets merged.
