If the feature is available, use cases will spring into mind.

Assume you have a eMMC based system which can also boot from other
storage (say, SDCard), and you want to write the current content of
the eMMC environment to the alternative boot device.

Yes, there are usually alternative approaches to perform similar
actions, but an easy way to save lsewhere might be handy, especially
if it comes at low cost.
