When you think about it, the shift indicator really isn't necessary at all. When was the last time you needed to see which "gear" you were in?

Three-point turns. Many times reverse doesn't engage if I am going too fast and the indicator is the fastest way to see save pressing the go-pedal and hitting the curb. And before you say it, I keep my rear camera on at all times, so it takes more time and mental energy to see the white lines suddenly appear than looking at the gear indicator on the instrument cluster.
