I have to admit that I have forgotten these use cases too. How ever
here are my reasons why I'm sending events in IQs:
 * to be 100% sure that the events don't go to offline storage
 * To have "acks" without implement XEP-0184 Message Receipts or similar
 * I'm connected with a JID with multiple resources (/a and /b for
example). I want to send events only to resource /a. When the
resource /a for some reason disappears some servers starts to route
message stanzas sent to resource /a to resource /b.
