Well, I suppose the option may be for paranoid people who don't want to use their agent-stored identities for authentication tries against unknown ssh servers. Me, I use it mainly for debugging connection and/or authentication problems to well-known servers when the ssh daemon there is running in debug mode and I want to have precise control what my client sends to it.
