I create new buffers all the time to cleanup text from outside Emacs, or simply 
as an easy way to quickly jot something down. Those buffers are easy to forget 
about and lose if you quit Emacs without remembering to save them.

There are also a number of scratch buffer packages which also might benefit 
from this.
