what is purpose of isEssential tag in resources.xml?

Doing a file search I find no mention of it in any of the angelscript files. Literally the only script reference for it is in resources.xml itself. Is this tag used in the untouchable compiled code anywhere or is it an irrelevant tag and completely ignorable ?

It tells ships not to remove too much of it when automatically transferring it. The percentage it leaves is decided when the order is given.
