AS a SharePoint developer, how common is it to use and work with windows communication foundation? What context? Any real based example?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
I create WCF web services for integration with other applications. A real world example is a custom .net web application we had that communicated with the SharePoint server to add documents, create new SharePoint sites, change permissions to the SharePoint site etc.
I usually create wcf services to handle special purpose tasks (store data outside of sharepoint, aggregate data). Or when in the case of SP2010 when the application runs in .net 4 runtime and I need to bridge.
