I'd really appreciate more of an academic answer that lists all the usages. Let me clarify my question. I am looking for a list of common usages or a URDF robot model in a typical ROS situation. For example, i know that a URDF is used with robot_state_publisher package to publish information about the robot during run-time. What are some other usages?

This is a hard question to answer because URDF is general purpose. If you could describe why you're asking you might get the answer you're looking for.

You can add objects to the collision scene so MoveIt plans around them, instead of (possibly) colliding into them.
