>Hardware failures and accidental deletion is what we have backups for
I would argue that accidental deletion is one of the things that versioning should handle.
Unfortunately backups offer only limited granularity along with people failing to use or test them. When you combine all that you can see why people a clear need for data recovery tools.
People clearly feel a need for recovery tools since there are quite a few tools on the market both free and commercial. It makes sense to consider that use case when designing a file system. It can only lead to better documented and designed file system.
