There are certain types of security or load testing where you want to 
simulate a large number of potential clients, but you don't actually 
want to have to use a large number of clients to do it.

If you're testing the network layer hardware itself, you may need to 
do the spoofing at a lower level than would otherwise be necessary 
for these types of performance or security testing.
