We used to have it in VB. It's useful. Imagine you wanting to give an answer but give hte opportunity for users to think about it and do it on their own? Normally (right now) you'd just ask if they want to do it on their own....wait for a reply...then do it. Long and tedious.
How do you bold stuff in CSS?
Perhaps not the best example but you can surely see hte potential. It was used in a variety of settings. I throw my vote in for getting it.
