I am probably missing something here, but how can UBI be useful by itself?
I would think until UBIFS is ready there is not much one can do with it.
Please tell me I am wrong ;-)

I am not aware of any non-commercial solution that can be used on a system
1. Has lots (gigabytes) of flash
2. Must be power-fail safe.
3. Must boot in seconds even after power cycle
4. Does not have internal battery or super-capacitor to allow for sync on
power failure.

I hope UBI+UBIFS will be able to do that but it is not ready yet. Another
possibility is logfs but it is not ready either.

Sorry if that is a bit off-topic.
