When you don't want to create an object simply to hold a custom
property. For example, if I'm making a quiz to use with students,
I keep their score in a global variable. If I wanted to use a
custom property I'd have to create an object just for that purpose.
Seems counter-intuitive to me.
Plus, as has been pointed out, it's sooooo easy just to say:
add 1 to gScore
Custom properties are a little more convoluted.
