Yes, it's faster than a timeout, but it's not guaranteed. Some hosts don't send the ICMP; some networks filter them; some machines may quit by being turned off (not being able to respond at all) etc. So you need the timeout, and can perhaps accelerate detection of some disconnects with this message.
