Good question actually. I never used that option on an agent myself. I don't think we should unless you have a very special business requirement. 

I guess this option is just available like for the other rules but I'm not sure really.

Hi MarcLasserre_GCS

    Every rule don't have rule availability. For example if we see Class Record, it dont have and even for  data instances applies the same. I am curious enough to know why it is available for agents.

What I believe happens is, when you create a master agent you add it in specific ruleset say (01-01-01).

But you can have the new master agent in 01-01-02 or 02-02-10 ... Like any other rule while developing the way you take advantage of rule resolution (making rule available, blocked etc) you can do the same for agents.
