Subject: -subformat key works better than documented

I found on john-1.7.8-jumbo5 that -subformat key accepts following:
$ john -format:md5-gen -subformat:'md5_gen(0)' ...
It works for me like
$ john -format:'md5_gen(0)'
While documentation (doc/OPTIONS) does not say about -subformat key.
It says only about -subformat=LIST key that shows list of subformats.
However such behaviour seems to me to be intuitional.

Hence the question could I use such behaviour in Johnny? Or will it be
fixed to be like in documentation and I should not use it?
