makes sense is your answer...kinda sorta...the smart function has a dedicated position for continuous, h,m,l...example I just did on my AFS with the 4 way pad selected to focus point selection I used the smart function to switch to CH then back to cant do this looking through the viewfinder well I guess you could if you are a camera ninja but you see it on the lcd...the Kp also has a menu setting to prioritize the four way pad to default to focus point selection...

comparison of my new KP with my K3...first the obvious...

mech shutter on KP 1/6000 sec. K3 1/8000 sec. KP has electronic shutter up to 1/24000 sec.
KP has smaller battery
K3 dual card slots
K3 has top lcd
K3 has more fps/buffer
K3II built in gps
K3 IR ports
K3 dedicated ISO button... KP iso on 4 way pad...can be assigned to smart function or 1 of three Fx buttons
K3 dedicated AEL button KP has AF/AEL button but AEL can be assigned to Fx button
K3 dedicated meter selection button...KP dedicated to a position on smart function

Some general info on the KP vs K3

both have hyper P and M...exposure bracketing the modes...KP does not have the drive modes that use IR remote obvious right??? both have the same continuous H/M/L...self timer KP has same plus timer with continuous shooting...MUP the same...KP has better features in multiple exp and interval shooting..
