Well, i guess we will just have to disagree on that latter point.

The sub-locator (and fine grained access) concept was taken from the
Hudson [1], which makes extensive use of the feature (for code reuse and
for plug-ins).

The NetBeans team have found the feature very useful for mapping
resources to database tables.

I know of other developers who are using it and like the reuse/DRYness
it can offer.
