I can give you a concrete usage case for this.
You've built up a partial reply so far, by looking up attributes for a user
in some database. Now you want to supplement that with a policy decision,
implemented by rlm_rest.
The policy says: if this user has a static IP address, then tunnel them to a
farm of static LNSes (unless the request was from one of those LNSes).

That one I don't have a case for, but the control list is sometimes a
convenient dumping ground for temporary variables. These could go in the
request list instead.
But I also think there is value in making the input and output JSON formats
identical. If the reply can set attributes in control and reply lists, then
I think it's reasonable that the request should be able to carry those lists
