I dunno weather the km's are designed in that way for such a use, my guess would be its purely aesthetic, but i guess km have stumbled upon something, quite clever to keep the smoke cooler without even realising!
I'd be kind of nervous to have one. It gets really humid here, and even metals that are close to each other on the galvanic table (which they might be, depending on the alloys KM uses) will corrode over time.
