(without ever having actually read the standard to date, despite using
it quite a lot...) Writing classes implementing DNS-SD would probably
be a lot easier with this, for example. There are undoubtedly others.

It is low level, sure. That doesn't mean it isn't useful for people
doing relatively low-level things. I'm not against 'prettier' API
built on top of this as convenience building blocks, but I would quite
like the base to be there if I need it, too, without having to
reinvent the wheel.
