I am not a real jack-expert but I will try to answer some questions:

I think that makes it possibly to run jack on other samplerates than
the one supported by the soundcard. this would be needed if you want
to open an ardour-session recorded at 96kHz on a PC with only
48kHz-capable hardware...

If you want to test/use an jack-app which isn't able to gain
realtime-rights due to bad configuration.
Or if gaining realtime crashes the pc.

If card/driver crash while trying to open the device with more than 16bit?
Shouldn't happen but who knows...

einen Sack Rohlinge kaufen.
