Some are, some aren't.  The most common place you see these is in scripts.

I use tee and wc relatively often.  I occasionally use 'yes' and the programming 
version of stat.  It's easier to use vim instead of expand unless you need to do 
it to a lot of files.  I use a2ps instead of pr.

The rest are not very useful.
