The main appeal is that oscillators in state 2 are ridiculously selective catalysts, blocking pretty much any interaction other than the intended one. Circuits are mostly immune to spaceships, and could clean themselves up after the wrong input is added. Think of it as a very versatile idea-concept of the ExtendedLife forcedeath state, with the added flexibility of using any CGoL pattern and with births occurring with the state 1 cells.
