Help me understand Captive Portal on WAP321

I seem to be having trouble understanding the logic of this feature:

  1. The AP allows the creation of multiple Captive Portal Instances
  2. These Captive Portal Instances can be assigned to various VAP's (essentially different SSID's and different VLAN's - if not different VLAN's, what would be the point have having multipls SSID's)
  3. The Captive Portal feature will only work if users on the various VAP's can access the management VLAN.

Could someone from Cisco give us a scenario where there is any benefit/value to this feature?  Because I see none whatsoever and can't think of any good use for this the way that it is implemented.
