Not quite. But if I ever write an OCaml binding to a C library,
I might need it; and other people might similarly need it.
It's a concrete functionality which is missing from OCaml but
makes sense. I use its equivalent in Haskell to wrap C libraries
which use callbacks in Haskell's higher order functions.

Yes.
