Particularly in web apps featuring sorting and/or drag & drop, outlines are god-sent as they don't modify layout – so in order to mark something as a drop target while dragging on top of it, outlines are invaluable to not cause any harm to the layout but highlight the target.

The other option would be to get rid of border radius in favor of something more generic (element-radius?) implicitly reflecting on border and outline.
