There are many problems that this video solves.
Sometimes you want to use a custom domain for localhost testing but you don't want to use 'localhost'. In that case the API simply doesn't work and service worker also stops.

Biggest reason I had for this was testing CORS configuration. Too many posts on SO show how to "enable all origins", but that's really not the point.
