Sure; if you can point to a better way to automatically get to this data on a
machine with no connection to the internet, I'm happy to hear it.

Then why is the table there? It's a MediaWiki feature we don't use?

Sure; that's not an easily replicable solution, though. To use that scenario;
every time the table is updated, I'd need to spin up a local MediaWiki
instance, query it, retrieve the data, save that to a file, manually transfer
to the file to [stat1001/stat1002/analytics*/delete-as-applicable]...and so
would anyone else looking at doing things with granularity at the namespace
level. That kind of approach would be more easily done by just querying the
APIs in a loop, retrieving the data as JSON files, and transferring that....the
problem being the 'automation' bit.
