The question posed was whether there are use cases in *typography*,
not in web pages. As posed, there are uses cases, and there are many
use cases even and I don't know why this is not obvious, since it is
very commonly done in typography (and in fact I was shocked to find
 that there is no "float: center" and this was a couple of years ago).

W.r.t. whether examples in web pages exist, of course they don't exist;
They need "float: center" to exist (otherwise you produce very fragile
pages that don't even work reliably in the same browser), and that does
not exist right now.

Yahoo and Gmail must die. Yes, I use them, but they still must die.
