It prevents the deletion of emails that the same login client, on a 
different box setup for imap, from  losing their email corpus. And 
dovecot doesn't have an individual client config choice that they could 
enable just for the 3 or 4 of us that use fetchmail or its workalike 
cousins (getmail?) and keep our own email corpus in tde-kmail. I can and 
do clean up with a web browser as the webmail interface does let you 
clean it out. So I do that about daily.
