In a road car you don't have to climb over a cage, you typically can move the seat, even after a crash. There is just a LOT more room.
I agree that a QD wheel is not needed in a road car. Honestly, I just want to be able to take the wheel off. I want to be able to put it on my desk, or carry it with me in a backpack. I just like it, there's no other reason.
