It's there now mostly just for syntactic consistency.  You can say 'new this' so why wouldn't you be able to say 'new super'.  It probably has limited use cases but it is one of those things that falls out of the overall expression syntax and I think if somebody does have a use case it would be surprising that it isn't allowed.
