Is the Air Gap on this faucet used only for the filtration system, or can it REPLACE the Air Gap already installed for my dishwasher?

I just realized I may not understand what the Air Gap feature for this water filter faucet is used for. My contractor's expert plumber said he'd never installed a drinking faucet with an air gap, and wanted me to get one so he could study how it works. My sink has three of the four holes punched out, which are being used for the main faucet (one handle, one hole), a spray nozzle, and an air gap for the dishwasher. I was thinking the Air Gap feature on this drinking faucet for the filtration system would replace the air gap for the dishwasher, which would mean I wouldn't have to punch out the fourth hole on my sink. To do so would make the placement too crowded and affect the function of the faucets and sprayer. Maybe the reason my contractor and his plumbers haven't done this before - used an air gap drinking faucet to replace the air gap for the dishwasher, so that hole does double duty - is because that ISN'T the way it works... Please HELP! Thanks~
