Is "I"/Inspect entirely redundant?

As a new user, I'm baffled by the "I"/Inspect command--it seems to be a less useful version of "i"/inventory:

- Pressing "I" brings up a list of items--the same list brought up by "i"
- Selecting an item from the "I" list shows details of the item--the same details shown by selecting the item from the "i" list
- The item details shown via "i" are accompanied by a submenu of additional commands available for the item--this submenu is not available from "I"
- "Inspect" is available as the top details screen submenu command via "i"--but selecting it simply shows the same details again, this time without the submenu

Is there any actual use for either the "I" command or the "Inspect" details screen submenu option?

If not, should they be removed from the game?

(Actually, one thing "I" does that "i" currently does not is that "i" always lists "- for floor" as a list toggle option, whereas "I" only shows it if there's actually something on the floor--but this seems more like an accidental omission from "i" than a reason for keeping "I.")
