Apart from query optimization I see an interesting application for
arrays in federation. 

Eric proposed something similar for this purpose [1]. Without it,
distributed joins either need a large number of separate queries
(resulting in high latency), or you need to mimic [1] by rewriting the
query with lots of FILTERs or UNIONs as proposed in [2], which is a
rather hacky solution.
