I think someone put it there because he didn't know where else he should
put it. :o)
Imho the whole import stuff is not centralized enough:
We have a link to the textfile import, the docSQL import link is
somewhere else and the upload field for SQL files is on the "SQL" tab...

Well, some time ago, I suggested to move the query box to a JS window
that may be opened via a link in the left frame.
If we used this idea, we could replace the old "SQL" tabs (in the db
view as well as in the table view) by an "Insert" tab.
Here, we could put the whole upload and import stuff.
I know this requires JS, but I'm sure we'll find a solution for this :-)
