Sillert,V.I: An out if you mess up, particularly if they have radar.
It would seem just having an available approach without a controller provides a level of accessibility and safety far in excess of not having an approach because you need to have a controller. One third of airfields in New Zealand that have scheduled IFR services do not have ATC of any sort. There's also plenty of others with no ATC that don't have scheduled services.

Sillert,V.I: Suppose you lose visual reference after the MAP?
Carry out the missed approach procedure, or, if more appropriate from a obstacle clearance point of view, carry out the promulgated IFR departure for that runway.

Unless it's a circling approach, I'd have to say in my experience, it would be very very unusual to lose visual reference after the MAP.
