Don't "mostly useless" and "limited utility" mean the same thing? I mean, 
they're the moral equivalent of "half empty" and "half full" respectively, 
i.e. they're expressed from different perspectives, but at the end of the 
day they seem to mean the same thing. I don't see how something can be one 
and not the other.
