The purpose is to enable the asset to be given an additional description beyond its name. Perhaps the country where it was issued, and so on. But it's not a good solution for general data storage, because its limited in size and every additional piece of data requires a follow-on asset issuance. For general data storage and retrieval we strongly recommend using streams.
