Dragging and dropping a color onto the gradient editor's preview area adds a node at that position with that color.  It IS useful behavior when you are initially setting up a gradient, but not when you are tweaking the parameters later on.

On the other hand, dragging and dropping a color onto a gradient node handle paints both sides of that node that color.  Which is definitely quite useful behavior - it does avoid the issue of GIMP not treating node colors as contiguous by default (it should, really!) .
