There's a nice use case for exporting as org. If I compose an email which includes source code and I send it to a mixed audience, some of whom use gnus, and others an html based mua, then I get best of both worlds in terms of syntax highlighting, since gnus recognises org src blocks and applies appropriate highlighting and those using some other mua get the html highlighting as dictated by my own scheme.

This also applies for a single recipient who may access email through gnus when available but needs the html version for viewing on, e.g. a handheld device.
