The web API is a reasonable option as a fallback, or as the unofficial Kodi addon does, a default-disabled configuration option for those who can't use SSDP or broadcast discovery for various reasons. As Nick mentioned, it doesn't work at all on ISPs that use carrier-grade NAT, which includes AT&T Mobility (LTE/fixed wireless) and Hughesnet satellite in the US, which make up a not insignificant portion of the userbase.
