That's weird, I've never used it for that reason, and haven't met anyone else who has yet. I'm sure some people use it for that, though. But I seriously doubt it's "mostly" used for that.
In any case, if you read-up on the project, you'll notice it has received a pretty decent amount of peer-review in its time. It's also deployed by some very serious organizations. I think it's a great tool as long as users understand its purpose and limitations. History shows that a lot of people don't, however.
