bash weirdness

This is just odd. Tell me how this functionality could be useful:
   $ export testf='() { echo test; }'
   $ bash
   $ testf
   test
In ten years I've never thought "Boy, I wish I could import shell functions from my environment upon invocation", but maybe I'm missing something obvious.
