permissions in the process configuration can also be set against iterations. You can e.g. have iterations solely for the purpose of generally switching on / off certain process constraints ("delivery only after approval by tech lead") when setting the iteration current. See also

 Arne's answer is a major reason, but some other reasons include:

- The current iteration can be used when construction queries, and is used in many of the out-of-the-box queries.
- The current iteration can be used in JRS queries.
- There are some dashboard widgets, such as the Timelines widget that are affected by the current iteration ( )
- There are some menus that mark which is the current iteration (such as the menu for selecting a value for the Planned-For property of a work item).
- A pre-condition can reference the current iteration (example: the built-in Descriptive_Change_Sets Deliver pre-condition).
- The "current work"  in the Eclipse MyWork view determines current work from the current iteration.
