Reversing Center Column of Tripod: Why?

I see lots of tripods that have reversible center columns. What is that purpose of that?

  Instead of simply locating the camera on top of the tripod, a reversible column also allows one to locate it low - between the legs for shooting low-angle or close-up/macro of subjects on the ground.
