This is exactly what wiki page says, ie, for special cases only.
On the same wiki page this is the 3rd delivery way from 4 existing for
For example, I need a way to run some software w/ not trivial
dependencies in foreign environment only once, and setting up
Zero Install/Sweets/PackageKit is an overkill. Using a self-contained
bundle is exactly the way.
I'm not sure that it might be useful for binary based activities (even
as an intermediate solution), as Rafael, mentioned. Because such self
contained binary bundles should be launched exactly in the same
environment (for now, people who provide bundles that tends to be self
contained need to support bunch of distro releases and platform arches).
