Well, imagine a poor mans replacement for batch files. We want to generate a
list of operations, maybe edit it by hand (a batch file is binary...) and then
feed it back to rsync. Or maybe do a dry run, look at it, and then just
selectively remove some files. There are many use cases.

Apart from that I argue that the inconsistencies in interpreting escape
sequences merit fixing. Ok, maybe it is not top priority but there still is no
reason why foo\#012bar becomes foo\#134#012bar.
