AllStar allows literally millions of DTMF decoded function capabilities.
By default only a small amount are provided, you are only restricted by your imagination for the rest.

Well, just to play devils advocate, there is precisely one reason I can think of. IRLP lets you custom define literally any sequence of DTMF that when decoded, will run a defined script. At one time I had many IRLP-based repeaters, changed to Hamvoip, but I kept one IRLP node online just to act as a DTMF to email/SMS paging terminal.  I'm not even using it for linking.  I have my RF-linked sites which have alarms like high building temperature and intrusion alarms - programmed to send those alarms out as DTMF messages. IRLP decodes them and fires out an SMS to my phone from a special account I have set with notifications always on. It works like a champ.

With Allstar, something kinda sorta like this could be done but it would have to follow the dial plan rather than being literally any sequence.

That's it. There's your one reason and it has nothing to do with linking, really. ;) Luckily this functionality will keep working well after David Cameron has a hissy fit and removes my keys, because the custom decode stuff has nothing to do with negotiating connections.
