In certain use cases, text-transform is identical to font-variant. A plausible use case is small caps through Google Fonts – you *have* to do it with text-transforms because Google Fonts do not preserve OpenType features so small caps, when offered, is always a separate font.

I do this myself and while I prefer to use OT features, I have to keep doing this as long as I have to use Google Fonts.
