Depending on how high and the weather conditions, it might give a false sense of security. Or it might serve the same purpose as for Rob Hall (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rob_Hall) in the 1996 Everest disaster (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1996_Mount_Everest_disaster), namely give you a chance to call your pregnant wife and say goodbye. Tragic story.
Back to the NOG content: I agree, a publicity stunt, maybe useful for a bit of telemetry but I can’t imagine the hardware would survive more than a season.
