For compatibility, yes.  It's the LCD for all the major MUD clients 
out there until someone comes up with a universally accepted alternate 

It's also a client available right now, so I can do server development 
and defer client development later.

I'm doing that as well.  The problem then is that you're dictating the 
tools to the user, and if someone is already using Portal or ZMUD or 
[insert any of the other dozens of other MUD clients here], they may 
be alienated enough that they don't want to even give you a try.
