Slug fields are used for url construction, and in cases when someone is switching their website to django they may want to preserve the old urls. I have done so on my blog, which was hosted blogger blog, and all urls ended with .html. Django admin does not allow me to edit the posts as slug fields do not allow dot. It should be allowed.
