Yep. A journalist trying to track a network of people. Some of them have
known IFPs (such as email addresses). Some of them m ight be defined for a
while as "the bloke who knows X and Y".

This is roughly the same application as the tracking down terrorists that
Simon mentioned, except I don't know anybody involved in tracking down

Maintaining my address book would be another example - this would be handy,
but I certainly don't have any particular inverse functional property for
the people there. Including their names, which turn out to be a long way from
an IFP.
