Funny, we added something similiar right after your snippet. :>=
Between being able to slow down mob actions (for example to give the
illusion a mob is talking instead of spamming a page of crap). And to
have mobs be able to remember/know/react you suddenly get a lot more
freedom and realism over any stock codebase.
