As a non-'SAS user', I'm not a good person to respond to this, but aren't you asking the wrong crowd? I have never come across this concept in a proper statistics course, and in my very brief encounter with it, it made absolutely no sense to me. But of course this does not automatically mean that it's non-sense or anything. So rather than asking R users who do not use it why they do not use something that there is no obvious reason to use to begin with, why don't you ask those who do (like whoever taught you to use them when you worked with SAS) to explain why they do?
