Why wouldn't it have value?  It allows one to keep an existing Emacs
session around into which one can connect remotely via ssh+emacsclient
in order to do work.  At least once emacsclient has been extended with
a -nw (--no-window-system) option in order to open a frame on the
emacsclient tty.

It should also allow keeping an Emacs server session around (not just
iconified, but actually frameless) that one can plug into using
emacsclient again, and have it open a fresh frame.
