It's not a gimmick. The buffer has its own set of commands with navigation along the branches of the tree.

And only when using them I really did, or several occasions, feel the benefit of Emacs's undo history data structure.

Going along the branches of the undo tree, switching them at will, and skipping over some branches in favor older changes really makes the process easier to understand and saves time significantly.
