In some complicated situation, a QuerySet is passed through several methods to construct the final QuerySet. In this case, it's useful for developers to revert previous select_related due to that is not necessary for the final query. Fox example, a QuerySet like following is passed to another method,

# qs is constructed a little far from invocation to final_query
qs = MyModel.objects.filter(...).select_related('author', 'priority')

result = final_query(qs)

only MyModel.summary field is required from the final query result. Definition of final_query would be

def final_query(qs):
    return qs.only('summary')

but, the select_related is also applied to the final QuerySet. With the ability this ticket is requesting, developers are able to revert all unnecessary related fields. It's much convenient.
