What is the purpose of scheduled Send/Receive when using Cached Exchange Mode?

What's the purpos of a scheduled Send/Receive when using Cached Exchange Mode? From what I've read, CEM uses it's own sync schedule on the backend, so scheduling a Send/Receive is not necessary. What does Send/Receive do that CEM doesn't? The only thing I can think of is that a Send/Receive (manual or scheduled) would force the Offline Addressbook to download more than once every 24 hours. Any thoughts?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Operationally it can be used to achieve synchronicity between parties at or around deadlines such as manufacturing or shipping cutoff times.
Cached mode is basically Offline Folders on steroids. That is where the schedule comes from.
If you are on a slow connection then you could use a schedule to send email rather than cached mode sending it almost immediately.

The simple rule is that you use cached mode, or the schedule with offline folders, not both.
