It does look like it can't currently be used for anything.  An obvious
use for it would be to allow it to be assigned to .media directly,
rather than having to go through text first.

Another use (possibly what prompted you to look into this?) is in
custom MQs, where it could be useful to represent an MQ alias, rather
than a purely custom one.
