Layered policies and pre-R80 gateways

Given that a lot of the functionality that layers provides won't actually be available until R80 Gateway is released, I'm trying to understand what benefits someone might achieve by using layered policies before R80 Gateway becomes available, if they even can.

I understand some of the R7x functionality today (e.g. IPS, Threat Prevention, App Control/URL Filtering) will map to fixed layers in the new policy-layers that can be changed once R80 gateway becomes available.

Can anyone explain to me at a high level how this works?
