Um, I suppose for stuff like freeing up port ranges during testing or
leveraging file permissions for crude access control on a multi-user
system or debugging a tor-only ircd that doesn't bind to anything, etc.
The experience feels slightly snappier as well, but maybe that's just
me. Perhaps you should ask the OP (from #emacs a couple days ago):

  <op> bah there doesn't seem to be an easy way to connect erc to a
       domain socket
  <redacted> op: You have IRC on a Unix domain socket?
  <op> redacted: i want to ssh forward znc to a domain socket
  <op> i.e. not open a port for anyone on the machine

You can forward normal sockets over SSH, so they must be doing something
special. Anywho, on the list of priorities for ERC, this has got to rank
among the lowest (IMO).
