Concrete use case is for example if you want to be available to your  
closest coworker (that see your real status). You want to advertise  
your familly member that you are working on a given topic and that  
they should not disturb you (but they can if they really need to).  
Other people see you offline.

You can reverse the situation. You are in vacation and connected. You  
are invisible for most of your coworker, online but with a status  
stating that you are on vacation and should not be disturbed and free  
for chat for other users.
