i'm truly fascinated by the genesis of this question

I'll check the manual of the E39 when I have to move it this afternoon

Here's the copy from the E39 manual. It's actually kind of interesting.

"The parking brake is primarily designed to prevent the vehicle form rolling while parked. It operates against the rear wheels.

"If, in exceptional circumstances, it should be necessary to engage the parking brake while the vehicle is in motion, do not pull it with excessive pressure."

So they're never going to say explicitly "this is intended for emergency use" but they clearly know that it will likely be used n "exceptional circumstances."
