Rest Service - Processing Options - End Requestor When Done

One of the Six Constraints of the REST Services is - stateless.

In Service Rest rule, under "Processing options" - we have a checkbox "End Requestor When Done".

As per the help guide, End Requestor When Done is "When the Processing Mode field on the service package data instance is set to Stateful, select this option to have the system end the requestor after the activity ends and the response is sent If the services are stateless, the value in this field is ignored."

For example, consider the below scenario:

We have a service package where it has soap and rest service methods and the processing mode is set to stateful in the service package rule.

As Rest service should be stateless, In Service REST rule, what is the need of having this checkbox "End Requestor When Done" for the Rest Service rule. Can't it be removed?
