Keep in mind that not everyone who uses a mouse-- even an expensive mouse-- uses it exclusively for hardcore, high-level FPS or RTS gaming. Thus, just because a feature is useless in those contexts doesn't mean it isn't useful elsewhere-- for casual gaming, types of gaming that aren't casual but don't have the same mouse precision demands, work, desktop use, or whatever. In fact, I'll bet that there are more people for whom the better tracking quality of an optical sensor is useless than for whom extra buttons or hyper scroll is useless. Of course, we who are more likely to benefit from tracking quality are vastly overrepresented here; this makes it easy for us to forget that we represent a very small proportion of mouse users.
