This is what we concluded in the DHTML style guide:

The suggested Control+M mainly is used to signal that the set of  
objects we want to take action on is now complete which makes it  
easier for the developer to analyze the set and mark appropriate drop  
targets. Without this signal the set of available drop targets  
analysis would need to be done with each addition or subtraction to/ 
from the set of items to be dragged, potentially a computationally  
expensive task.
