I think they did it because in essence the difference between Contact and NPC in an NPC group is a set of artificial rules put in place so that Cryptic is able to deliver functionality to us in manageable portions. I know that's how I'd expose my API, not everything at once and in a controlled fashion.

I don't think they'd be useless since they could be used to demonstrate just how much the Foundry has advanced!
