I'm not quite clear as to why this is an advantage yet Currently, this
seems to have been designed to provide interfaces for future tools to
use, while not regarding whether or not people want those tools.

Could you provide a use case or two to help clarify things? The main
one I see is for an end user to look at a packages copyright file and
say 'yes, I can use it for $foo', which is a case that's detracted from
in the proposal.
