Using Arcade Geometry functions in ArcGIS Online

I noticed that the December update of ArcGIS Online included Geometry Functions | ArcGIS for Developers . That is really swell, but I am trying to get my head around this and without the actual access to other features, I have problems seeing the benefits to this. 


Kelly Gerrow; or anyone else, is it possible provide some real-world examples of how this can be used. I suppose I could hard code another geometry storing the json in the arcade expression, but it does not seem as the right way to do this. 


Especially the SetGeometry intrigues me  ( Geometry Functions | ArcGIS for Developers ) I can imagine this it returns an error if I buffer a point feature and try to set the geometry, but when I apply it on a polygon, it returns that the geometry is immutable. 

Any example would be highly appreciated!
