Say the files in the dired buffer are photos/songs or so.  I mark all of
them, or those of them I'm interested in.  I open the files with a
viewer or vlc or whatever.  There I have a look at them, in the same
order as they originally appeared in dired.  Now say I am interrupted,
and/or I have deleted some of the files, and want to resume with the
rest of the files, or some other subset.  I.e. I want to mark subsets
(of subsequent files) in a dired buffer to look at the files in this
order, and the most natural way for me to do this is to use the region
for marking.
