Feature request is nothing but an email with justification why some new

Nope. It's just that agenda and capture template selection use similar
menus. The reason why Org opened agenda files was solely related to
collection of all the tags and offering them in the completion dialogue
during capture.

<F1> v variable-name <RET>
In your case:
<F1> v org-agenda-files <RET>
