For most application here in the US, front plate is used for access to gated communities, country clubs, etc... or for a vanity plate statement.
Well, I think you have a warped perspective because of where you live. Actually, only 20 of the 52 states do not require both front and rear plates. I've lived with not having front plates here in Oregon and finally gave it up. Many jurisdictions here, in California and elsewhere write expensive parking tickets for no front plate. It also gives law enforcement a legitimate reason to pull you over any time. I finally gave up and am using tow hook-mounted plates on my two cars.
