Primarily for non-Warzone PvP like Smuggler's whatever it's called on Tatooine or the Ilum PvP area. I'm also not sure, but there's that Vengeance stat. Not sure how it works or if a bolstered player is treated as having Vengeance (I hope so), but that's another reason.

Also it gives PvPers something to work for and feel proud about after getting.

Sub 50, Its pretty damn good gear to pick up and takes little effort. At 50 Its another choice of gear to work on. I also believe there adding a PvP stat to it kinda like resil, As much as i hate it you do kinda need to or top PvE gear will be top pvp and it turns into Old school wow where raiders ruled.

Expertise is the PvP stat and it is pretty much required at level 50.

Yes, companions can wear your PvP gear.

Your stats are better than another persons with subpar gear. For example a tank specced player has more hp than a dps specced player.
