It lessens the impact in this particular and unusual case, which is a 
sine wave. 
For many joins of actual music when editing, a short fade make *less* of a 
click than an instantaneous switch.

That's generally a good principle for any kind of edit. If you moved the
slice to the transition from one note to another it might be less
audible. Also in general avoid slicing at all unless you really want an edit 
at that point...

Why not copy the whole region, then pull the start and end edges of the
copied region to encompass the part you wanted? No slicing required.
