Modifying the user member variables before they are saved to the database. 
Without a hook, you can't do any sort of validation, modification, etc.  Say I
want to examine the user's name and auto-update their email address based on
that or auto create a signature for the user.  Or generate a nickname based on
their real name.  The only field you can validate right now is the email
address which has a dedicated hook.
