I think they are useful yes.

But <g>, <a>, <text>, <tspan>, <textPath>, <filter> and <font> all
depend on child content, not to mention <title> and <desc> for any
element.

In fact, one might go as far as to say that anything but basic shapes
and paths depend on child content, so it's not just "SMIL" :P
