 This is not my problem, but I'll bite :)

We have a live environment where we very often have to "hot deploy" single 
files between releases. These small hot-deployments go mostly unmanaged, so 
it's good to have these keywords in the files so we can quickly recognize 
hot-fixes (has this file been patched on this server yet?) .
