The usage scenario for shading is that you can basically "minimize" a
window to get it out of the way to check some document or such w/o having
to switch your eyes back to the taskbar and look for it to restore it. It
can be handy some of the time when the screen space is tight.
Whether it deserves to be the default double-click action or not is an
entire matter entirely..
