Why thenables?

The question of thenables came back on Mozilla's Bugzilla [1] (see 
comment 29 & 30) with a decent share of skepticism that I share too.

I'm sorry I didn't go through all the promises discussions, but what's 
the rationale of supporting thenables? I fear this feature won't be 
necessary 2 or 3 years after native promises ship. For sure, it's of no 
use to those who only use native promises.

I read from the meeting notes that it was pretty much the only point of 
debate and a long one.
