A few...

I can think of a few. You might want to mask an area based on color, and knowing the exact color and being able to spot check for that value can be useful (think green screens in video, sort of like that). There may be a particular color that has problems reproducing or displayed, being able to test for that is also useful. You might try a filter defined by color, and want to test for effectiveness.

Or... you might be curious.
