There's one use case that I can't really talk about publicly at this point
(and it's not my code either, so I wouldn't have all the details). Nothing
super secret or anything - it's just something that is not mine,
so I won't try to speak for anyone. We wanted to get this upstreamed first,
as that's the right thing to do.

Since I posted my first RFC, I did get contacted off-list by several
readers of linux-nfs who wanted to use the feature in practice, too, so
there's definitely interest out there.
