Reason is simple: if you create content element using old page module or 
list module, templavoila does not always know (though sometime it can 
guess) where to put it. If it cannot determine, it puts element to 
unused. Later editor may place it appropriately.

I see no problem with this concept. This is as simple as "do not use it 
if you do not like it or do not know what it is".

You mean references to files and images? References in tv is tv's own

Well, if you have usability issues, post them to BT. They always have 
good chance to be fixed :)
