For example, if you just want to print one article of a journal issue.
But it seems me that this idea with turning off the typeset output
(mentioned in Knuth's TeX-book) would be a simple solution, that is,
relatively easy to implement with reliable output results.

Perhaps the two ideas can be combined: Instead of having a command
\include causing the pagebreak, one has a command \partition, that allows
one to skip forward in the typesetting process; then only use \input. (So
\partion\input would be equivalent to \include.)
