Why the reverse deep select for viewers and editors?

Why is deep select (Cmd-Selecting) reversed for Viewers of Figma files? As an Editor you drill down into layers by double-clicking or Cmd-Selecting. As a Viewer, however, you select child layers by default and Cmd-Select parents!!

This is super weird to me and I wouldn’t have known unless having two Figma accounts and doing a dev test (and Figma for Developers talk) today.

This results in some issues such as developers selecting child vector layers in icons that should be exported in a 24x24 frame.

Do you think this should be the same between Editor and Viewer? If not, what is the reason?
