Not really. Its simply a convenience method that I can probably hack for 
myself, but didn't want to if it already existed. Its simply when I'm 
drafting I tend to work in subtrees, and it becomes (for my purposes)
quite unwieldy when working with large trees (as I tend to). The indent
when I'm working with the narrowed buffer is a waste of space, and it
also makes it difficult for me to work out what level I'm working at
with a simple eyeball at the structure.

However I can quite cheerfully see that this is not something most
people would want/need.

Yes it probably should.
