The new feature ...

is it not for webmasters to add the whats related function to their websites as well - the re-testing would be refining it for content analysis using current algos etc.

Also carrying out other tests as well associated with implementing it.

Probably this has been done to give the best related results for a particular query set. Related sites may be a technique that google wants users to test them and probably use them in their site.
