Based on what I see here, this is an excellent example of where faster shutter speed was more important than the ability to shoot five stops down with help of IS, also helped by relatively shallow DoF. Five stops would have gotten you ISO 1600 at a shutter speed of 1/4s and motion blur to match.

Yes, that was the intent of the example. I doubt I could provide an example of where stabilization was important for a shot as I (or my wife who took that photo) rarely make use of it. But, that doesn't mean I can't see its usefulness.
