Please note that the "main" tuning slide is still there in the photo, on the bottom where it's "supposed" to be, and comes from the valve cluster into the dogleg, etc. I can't see how this slide could be a repositioned main slide (you'd have too much tubing).
However, for low register intonation, having the 4th valve slide on top and adjustable might make sense.
