that's the purpose (even though not that much used)

As Joseph said, there are other similar cases. And in my view if you
request a selection (and you fail to match) then the else is a natural F

In fact one could think of also having

\<thing>_case:nnTF

where the T branch is selected if you have a match (in addition to
executing any match code from the "n" argument). I personally rather
liked that I idea, as it fits well with other places like \prop_get:NnN(TF)
