I've never had  a variable angle or felt a need for one.  I'd say that most users have never used one or will need one.  From a mechanical point of view they will decrease stability.

However, I can see where certain special uses might beg for one offering a convenience that only they could provide... and if the resulting instability is not an issue... it could be a wondrous tool to have.

The couple of times I wanted a camera secure in an odd position that a standard tripod could not achieve, I've found this tool to be the answer:
