To me, two even more compelling use cases are:
a) sharing global taxonomy vocabularies (the countries of the world
each have globally unique ids shared across all sites)
b) import/export. This is like the merge example from Ethan but
perhaps a little more concrete in terms of what people are already
doing. I could export my blog posts from one site and import them into
another site and keep the id.
c) global user ids. I always have the same user id on every Drupal site.
