Deploying XForms in text/html isn't a use case, it's a *solution* one
could propose *for* some use case(s). I'd like to know of a use case,
solvable by deploying XForms in text/html, that isn't solvable by simply
using HTML's existing forms functionality.

I'm not certain of this.

It's not irrelevant because you can use XHTML, it's (most likely)
irrelevant because the Web platform already has a widely deployed forms
language: HTML's forms.
