Soft drop shadow on a solid border seems a reasonable use case to me.

Replacing the solid border with an image of a solid colour chip (!) to
use as a sliced border image and applying the filter to that would not
give the same result, due to the image slicing/stretching/repeating
that border-image does.

And box-shadow is still, unfortunately, just a box shadow and not a
border shadow.
