When you identify a polygon with an hole, the selected area includes the hole.
Well it's just a detail but sometimes, you want to use the hole to see what is under the layer, under what you have identified.

Is there any special reason to not to use some similar behavior like it is done by 'Select' tool ?
1. Draw multi-polygon feature containing few holes.
2. Click on polygon using 'Identify' tool. Whole polygon including holes
3. Click on polygon using 'Select' tool. Exact polygon shape is
highlighted (without holes)
I think, current behavior is quite confusing, when You have big
polygons, containing holes where another polygons exists.
