Flipping sprints using the Split function

My team has been using the Split function when their tasks end up needing more than 1 sprint to complete.  They complain (like many others) that there are fields and attachments that are not copied over to the new split task.  

While sitting in with another team during their sprint planning I saw person split a task but put the new task in the current sprint and send the old task forward to the new sprint.  While Jira certainly allows this use of the Split function it just seems wrong to me, even though I could not come up with a hard reason why not.  

Does anyone have experience using Split in this manner?  It just seems wrong but I am trying to be open-minded. Thanks. 

ps.  When I look at the fields that don't make it to the new task, it seems very problematic since it will be missing important fields such as Status, Resolution, Time Spent, etc.
