Given the quality of the standard, the only use I can think of is as a
heuristic for "readable host name" in frame decorations.  If so and
the Xlibs will do this for you, this is the Right Thing.

WM_CLIENT_MACHINE is used by managers to kill off bad clients when they don't respond. It uses _NET_WM_PID and WM_CLIENT_MACHINE to determine if the pid is local.
