Yes there is, so long as the result does not suck.

If the result sucks (significant dropped frames, spending minutes futzing
with NoScript, whatever) then the user experience will be a net negative to
Tor, because people will say "Tor can't do X" rather than that they were
not capable of doing it.

This is why (for example) I posted videos of myself streaming HD Video over
Tor, to help dispel the old myths about video over Tor:

Totally.  So many people are fixated on "anonymity" and completely ignore
the end-to-end nature of Onion addressing, for instance.

It's a fantastic enabler of high-integrity communications.
