AFAIK, the reason this option is enabled only in stand alone mode is the fact when Pcbnew is run
from a project, there is a close link between Eeschema, Cvpcb and Pcbnew.

For instance:
- Cross probing
- Export/import a netlist from Eeschema to Pcbnew
- And obviously, the board is expected to be closely related to the schematic

Once a board is append to the current board, this link has no meaning, and even break the new board.

In stand alone mode you do not have this link.
