In case you want to pull shadows, in case you want to burn/dodge heavily or drastically increase the saturation. In extreme cases you might get posterization with a lower bit detph, but more so in dark parts of the image.

I posted it because it explains the nonlinear relationship between analogue signal on the well and a number of bits per every threshold of this signal.
