Except for that which may be conferred by obscurity, it has none. It's
just a way to take something that has already been securely encrypted
in the binary domain, and convert it into letters which, instead of
being uniformly distributed, are distributed in such a way to minimize
bandwidth requirements for transmitting the bits by Morse code.

It's present to illustrate an unconventional way of applying the
theory behind optimal coding.
