The primary reason I'm aware of is to support transitioning
between run levels, where some of the stuff in the previous
run level is left running.

For the increasingly anal security types, run levels would let
you support booting without a network, until after you had
battened down the hatches.  I'd never use it, in normal use,
but what the heck...
