Personally, I haven't yet found a use for an MI application.

However, I've found learning about MI to be very useful because of the
insight it gives me into the way things work on our platform.

I've also found understanding MI to be helpful in learning how to use the
MI built-ins from HLLs.   For example, a few months ago, I was faced with
the prospect of writing an MD5 routine in RPG or C -- but learning about
the CRYPT capability of MI made it very easy for me to just call that from
RPG instead...
