Packet captures are useful without anything being returned. It's not
uncommon to use some sort of unidirectional tunnel to transport captures
over an IP-network.

Same goes for logging. Traditional udp syslog is a one-way street.

And I'm sure there are more examples.

Not that I think it matters in this discussion, which appears more
circular than bidirectional.
