It's like "recent documents", I suppose.

Cell-phone/SMS/chat - recent calls/message history

And in the Contact app, it'd be like a "speed dial" tab - the people you
speak with most sitting right there.

I guess it's a feel-good feature to have someone's close friends all
collected together, like a list on Twitter.

There are a couple of notes I have pinned in the list, I only need them
once or twice a month, but searching for them when I do need them is an
extra step, a hassle I don't want.
