    It would be useful for organizations that need to archive historical map products to create a MXD archive type file.  I see an archive MXD having the ability to export to a single file with it's own extention.  The archive file would have embed, data, layout, labeling, etc; and would need to be extracted back to a MXD for minipulation or to re-use.  This type of file would allow places to take timestamp of projects and put them away and then be extracted in the future if needed.  

    This similar to a Layer package, but also included the graphics, cartography and layouts that are housed in the MXD.
