I’d argue that those are few and far between. Even for the few use cases that it has been recommended for, there’s always another font that does a better job. For lettering comic speech bubbles, it tracks too wide, making everything take up a bit too much space. And though it is sometimes pushed as dyslexia friendly due to it’s irregular letter forms, it still has a mirrored pair of b and d, which can cause difficulty.
I am absolutely with you on inappropriate overuse being the main problem with it.
