Mostly for the same reasons people benchmark performance of their office PCs. Or run multiple layers of emulation.

Some times it's really useful. For example as 32-bit browser on a 64-bit system. I had to use 32-bit Firefox under Wine to get some obscure java program (Nortell VPN client) working that was failing on my 64-bit Firefox and 64-bit Java.

And of course it's a valid test program for Wine. Where you easily can compare results.
