I made this function for modders but I don't know if it is a good point for mod.

That is very cool! I like this idea, I'd be interested to see how this changes the meta.

P.S. I believe selection modifiers also should have a text asides the cursor to inform players about the modifiers function

Besides, this is a demostration usecase about powerdown units. I don't know if it is worthy for modders to try out to build a mod by using this function.

(It is not a mod on mod, just a usecase here by using a modified actor in Shattered Paradise.)

Something similar that comes to my mind and might be useful as well:

Mine laying box-dragging - you drag a rectangle, mine layers come lay mines, go to repair, come back and lay more mines

the thing is, mine laying is so click intense nobody uses it ^^
