There's one thing the werewolf is really, REALLY good for: Murdering people in cities without getting massive bounties on your ass. It makes the Assassin's Guild missions a lot easier if you can just go werewolf and murder people in broad daylight, then run away. Nobody knows it was you.
I never even thought to do that...Have to give that a go if I roll a new character for a Dawnguard playthrough.
