What is the point behind approving such a license if nobody is
planning to use it?

If you want to submit a license for use value, that would be fine.  We
have in the past discouraged third-party submissions because we have
found it VERY useful to work with the author of the license while it's
still in draft form.  The most that can be done with a third-party
submission is yea/nay, and that's emotionally unsatisfying.
