SRA Development question: what can the 'StatusFile', specified in the request from SRM, be used for?

So as the title,

I was looking in the Sra20Spec.pdf, and noticed that for the XML request field "StatusFile" e.g. XML request outline (from page 7):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<Command xmlns="http://www.vmware.com/srm/sra/v2">
    <Name>command name</Name>
    <OutputFile>path/to/response.xml</OutputFile>
    <StatusFile>path/to/status.xml</StatusFile>
    <LogLevel>log verbosity level</LogLevel>
    <LogDirectory>path/to/log/directory</LogDirectory>
    ...command parameters (command-specific format)...
</Command>

there is only one mention of what it is used for (from page 8):
To report progress SRA should append XML messages to a file specified in the element. The content of a progress update message is a element containing an integer in the range [0, 100]. SRM interprets this integer as percent complete:

My question is, is this all it can be used for? Are there any other expectations for what could be put into this file?

 

Thanks in advance
