Well, it's a level of security to keep people from running programs (playing
card games, etc.). If you're a goverment office (not that the government
does such things, it's more commercial companies that do such things, but
I'm just providing an example, and some government agencies do do such
things), and you need to prevent 99% of all other activities on a domain
controller, you might limit 99% of everyone from using such an option.

Why it would be applied on a working system... is security and to prevent
employee abuse. You might severely limit employees to using only specific
applications on any given computer system. Of course there are other ways to
do such things, but perhaps a contract agency wants to get more work from
you.
