You mean like a PC with a video card with GPU, sound card with DSP and a floating point unit? As each of these components becomes more complex it will need to start maintaining its own resources just like an OS.
Asymmetric multiprocessing is useful in a number of areas, and I suspect it will become more so in the future.
