It's for a wipe plate if you have the skill and incentive to build one. You definitely have the skill; incentive is another question. I think a wipe plate on the edge is less useful than a drip shield close to the object being printed.

I should add that the wipe plate is vaporware. I'm not aware of anybody who has tried to make and use one.
