Whats the point in having Kick Down?

Might be a dumb question, but coming always having driven manual’s all my life, what the point in kick down on an auto ‘box? ie the resistance point at the bottom of the throttle when you floor it.
I can see it drops a gear (or two) whilst in kick down, but why have the resistance point? Surely it would still work without the resistance point as full throttle can still be detected ie when you put your foot to the floor?
