Think of reflashing OS, apps, etc...

Yes, but this one can probably be multi-users.

Maybe can I share my phone with friends, family, co-workers... Then
why not have a group called 'freecalls', for example, owner of the SIM
code? And a group called 'contacts', members allowed to access a
global contact list ?

It's not yet critical, but can be a serious advantage on using the
phone and some particular apps, no?
