`next-error' is a particular case of the general one: processing an
input file and getting some info related to specific lines in the input
(be an error, the matching of a regular expression, or whatever). As
has already been said, Emacs can not embrace every single use of the
general feature "going to a line of a file for whatever reason". If it
could, there wouldn't be a `goto-line'.

I've already put a few examples of real-life, both mine and from people
I've directly observed.

Yeah, I think we've pretty much beaten the dead equine to a pulp... :)
