I believe it was added in 2.70 (replacing the "play" button which was 
there before, hence why you might not notice the change without looking 
It may not be the most optimal place (it feels sort of odd having an 
audio operator button among all those image/rendering buttons), yet I'm 
not sure I'd call that "hidden"..

Oh. I don't know of any way to do that directly, but you could use Ctrl 
I (invert selection) + H (mute) to temporarily disable all strips except 
for those which were selected. The mixdown operator does not include 
muted strips, so this should work.
