But - to be honest - what's the advantage?

I also rarely used USR files in the times but that was because I  
associated the filetypes in the following way:

PRG - files, which content is expected to be loaded at specific  
address in memory
SEQ - files, which are read in portions f. e. into I/O buffers at any  
USR - files, which are loaded at any address - all data at once
REL - data, for which random access is required - used for database
