The're useful when the structure of a table evolves over time -- for
example, version 1.45 of module foo adds an index for better
performance. YOu can change the original definition, but you'll need
these additional functions to write the update_x() function.

These functions are a useful addition, but I am not sure if the
developer that defines tables for his module should need to use them. An
alternative for the install system could be that the structure of the
tables is defined in a xml file that can be validated before it is
processed by the install system.
