Without it, you'd either bounce the rev limiter, or as 1973z-man said, carry your crankshaft as you walk home.
I just finished reading the new car and driver. This is exactly how they described the "no lift shift" feature. As for the launch control on the manual... "The engine computer limits revs and fiesses the throttle for traction after the clutch dump."
