Another use would be safety considerations. For example, if you wanted to estimate on an order of magnitude basis whether a fire of a particular type with a known heat that will produce a certain temperatuure for a certain duration would structurally compromise a steel structure.
For that, you might want to know the melting point, not the boiling point.
