In the end I still do agree with you, I expect the examples I gave not to be first shots, but modification of already complex code where it was easier to add one line in the continue block than one if in the loop body and finding where to put the braces. And when you have to explain how risky changes are to a colleague or customer that doesn't understand much about coding, showing that you added one line in a tiny block instead of a few characters in several places of a long mess might be easier. My point is that this feature might be used all over the place.
