Exactly. It aint like "while I'm at it let me throw that BR549 model in the cart to give away to a stranger some day".
I'd say the more likely scenario is for family members in town, neighbors, or co-workers. I have a 1AA Energizer light at my desk that I would loan out to any co-worker that needed a light, and I wouldn't be upset if I didn't get it back. (the light has pretty noticeable PWM on low).
For some family members, I'd keep a cheaper light ready to give to them if they happened to need it in a power outage. (I wouldn't get them a nice light to begin with since it would likely be lost or ruined by the time they needed it for real). Next time I'm in Home Depot I'm going to get that two-pack of Eveready 1D plastic LED lights for just this purpose.
