In an EV, once you stop you can take your foot off the brake, so passengers can get out without putting it in park. The only real reason to put an EV in park is to stop driving.Sure, although you're now changing the pressure on the brake as you wait, assuming you're able to comfortably use the brake at all with the seat in the back position.
Also, this assumes park = the driver is getting out of the car. However, in an EV, it's perfectly reasonable to have the car in "Ready" ("started"), but in Park, while waiting for a passenger to get in or get out of one of the other seats. (that's actually reasonable in an ICE vehicle as well, but that's sort of irrelevant here.)
These are vaguely edge case, but they are all solved with the current setup.
Just providing a "sane" way to use easy entry/exit without a start/stop button.
