Try the current system with a couple (hundreds of) thousands menu items and you will see :D

Because I have not coded any other button in there :) though I might.

Any time when you need to administer things which are one in a huge lot, it's very useful. Administer path aliases when you have a million of them. Create node references. Etc.

About collections, that's a different usage than what I envision here.

Screencast ... I could create one, sure.
