I'm trying to think of a place where I would use that. Nothing is immediately coming to mind. Maybe it could be used to move backup files from one system to another over a VPN or something.

BITS Also supports queuing and priority.

If you have gargantuan files to move, may periodically lose an Internet connection, do not particularly care how quickly it happens, and do not want your local computer bandwidth affected.

I think basically anywhere you would use a throttle-enabled download manager. Upside: it's built in. Downside: difficult to use interface and no awareness outside the local nic.
