Purpose of 64 MAC addresses in 6500 chassis

Hi all.

Since the extended system ID is always enabled for a chassis with 64 MACs, it is assured that we will have unique BIDs even if we use the sam MAC in the switch since we have different numbers of VLANs. Let's say we only use the first MAC for all STP/RSTP instances, what will be the purpose of the other 63 MACs?

Thanks in advance. Any help will be appreciated.
