Need for maintenance view in ABAP

I know the definition of maintenance view- it provides a view using which we can maintain table. But we have view cluster which helps effectively update data in multiple related tables. I have seen few posts in which they create maintenance view on table first, generate maintenance dialog for the maintenance view and then use them in the view cluster. Instead we can generate maintenance dialog in Maintenance generator directly for the table (utilities->table maintenance generator) and then include them in the view cluster. Where actually the maintenance view is required?

see the link(what was the need for maintenance view?Direct maintenance dialog on table utilities->table maintenance generator should have used) :

The maintenance view is useful to add some join and selection criterita and to hide/protect some fields, but is mainly required in the linked document to define the subset fields used in the cluster dialog.
