Yes. for example these things can't be done with value:

do "delete graphic 1"

repeat for each item  myOtherVar in "a,b,c,d,e"
do "put myVar into myOtherVar"
end repeat

generally, value() allows you to do math things, and data-retrieval stuff. Meanwhile 'do' allows you to do _everything_ you can do in normal scripts.

see also the relevant entries in the dictionary.
