I can understand having this feature in PS or Ai, but why Indesign???

Indesign is a professional production tool, it doesn't need silly little toy features to further bloat the software.

I would say because you can get it as standalone software and not part of the package. So it's for people that need this feature but don't have access to other software 

 

I agree InDesign is a production tool, its not something I would use in my day to day.

 

But some might find it useful.

I'm with you troyjack – Adobe, please don't add this sort of thing to InDesign.

 

We don't need or want it and it is sure to add overheads that slow things down. If you need AI imagery there are already plenty of options around – both paid and free.

Surely pulling images from a separate tool... firefly rather than bloat the software or at least use firefly through a web panel or is this what's happening?

In my opinion »Generative Fill« would be more useful:
You have a small image which does not fit the given space, so with one or two clicks you could expand it via »generative fill« without leaving InDesign.
