Another use case for mounting SMB shares: Use any non-kio-slave-supporting app (e.g. VLC) to view a large (e.g. 3GB) video file.

In this case it is absolutely insane to download the whole file first (which can take several minutes, even on a GBit network), occupy gigabytes of temporary space locally (which might not be available) and only then start the video. The video should be opened right from the network location.
