Advantage of using a mixed zone?

Why and where people are using mixed zone? Is there any specific reason to use a mixed zone?

Mixed zoning is something i,ve come across when a transistion from port domain based to pWWN based zoning is undertaken.

I don't think mixed zoning has any other purpose.

With [resent day routed fabric's and or NPIV being used, pWWN is the recommended way of zoning.
