Just like any test suite, it catches regressions. We saw that it was effective when we introduced certain JSC regressions that it could have prevented. Since some of the errors Sputnik catches are platform specific (32 bit vs. 64 bit, JIT vs. interpreter etc), it is particularly important to have it on build bots.
Some subtests are less interesting (e.g. many Unicode tests basically check ICU behavior), so we have the slowest of those disabled already.
