VARA,,COLUMN syntax for reading values from dynamic VARA objects

I discovered last week that it is possible to read values from dynamic VARA objects (such as SEC_SQLI VARAs) by specifying the column, but not the key:
  • InVARA object references:
    {ABC.GET_FIRST_USER.VARA_SQL,,1}
  • In GET_VAR script commands:
    :SET &FIRST_USER# = GET_VAR(ABC.GET_FIRST_USER.VARA_SQL,,1)
This format — specifying the column, but not the key — is not documented anywhere that I could find. Can anyone point me to a page where this format is documented? Can someone confirm whether this format is supported?
