This is the use case:
The business example for this is one business partner providing multiple clients with sites/communities within one portal instance. The business partner has site admins that log in to any of their communities and manage all of the sites/communities for their clients. Adding new sites/communities does not require us to provision new portal instances which speeds up deployment of new clients and we don't have to give them access to the base portal which prevents problems and maintains separation from other business partners and their clients.
The end users are the clients who only know about their Community Virtual Host URL. If we had to give them access to the Instance Virtual Host URL in order to maintain their name, password, or email address, it would have to be the business partner's URL.
The request is so that all the links in the control panel, MyPlaces, MyAccount to be relative links, or use the host name of the current request.
