I would've expected it to select all the vertices in the given island,
plus any other shared vertices.
The way I see it, the use case for this tool is selecting vertices on
the mesh; If you want to select the island for UV manipulation, then it
makes sense to disable it.
But IMO this should be a user choice and not forced, as AFAIK it's
impossible to quickly select all mesh vertices in a given island.
