The comparison is actually not helpful because Opus just doesn't go that low. As I've said before, the only two codecs that Opus does not replace are codec2 and FLAC.

It is helpful at a higher level. If you're trying to design a system, is it worth pushing the bit rate as low as possible? Seeing the qualities achieved for typical signals can help people decide which trade-offs to tackle. Should you shoot for jamming enough into single network packets with moderate lag and a simple overlapping scheme for handling drops or go ahead and expect many packets with a different error handling mechanism, etc.
