Sure, it'd be handy for some people.
It'd be ideal, but there are reasons why it can't be done.
I fall somewhere between the (1) and (2). I've personally never really felt the need for a discrete mindmapping tool and, to be honest, I'm not really sure how to use one or what exactly they do. I'm actually pretty happy with a combination of a task/list manager (like OmniFocus or OmniOutliner) and a text editor. But I'm willing to be enlightened. :-)

Does a mindmapping tool just allow you to graphically represent your thoughts? Could something like OmniGraffle satisfy the need, or is there some additional functionality specific to dedicated mindmapping tools?

I guess it largely comes down to how we each think and work. So I suppose I can see this being of value to some people, but I'm not one of them at the moment.
