As for a direct use case, we ran into one recently when wanting to write a ROStful (ROS-REST conversion interface) client. As a client to a REST server api, it may need to set outgoing optional fields and parse incoming optional fields. A fixed ros message is not rich enough to transmit/receive this kind of information.
