What I meant by "use cases" was this exchange:

In the case of changing UI indicators, using a common codepath for 
success as well as errors seemed more useful than multiple error 
callbacks. 

In the case of file read APIs, simply getting the data asynchronously is 
more convenient than using events.  There is no intrigue at work here, 
merely disagreement.
