Otherwise you'd be insane to turn your valuable Chase UR points into Avios...
I don't live in a OW hub or only fly domestically, but I still find Avios points to be quite handy. They've saved me a ton of $s/points flying short haul in the US, Japan and Europe and even West Coast to Japan in F (yes the YQ was high, but my preferred airline in *A didn't have any availability). I wouldn't use Avios for my primary airline points program, but I wouldn't dismiss it out-of-hand either.
