From time to time, I see a requirement to generate random identifiers for things like users or orders. People want to use random numbers so that the "next" identifier is not guessable, or to prevent insight into how many new users or orders are being generated in a given time frame. They could use NEWID() to solve this, but they would rather use integers due to key size and ease of troubleshooting.
