This feature is about having native support to version data within the table. The application will always be able to access the most current data, however through pseudo columns or via other means older version of the data is available. This feature is available in other databases such as Oracle Flashback Data Archive, SQL Server Temporal tables or MariaDB System-Versioned Tables (https://mariadb.com/kb/en/system-versioned-tables/)
Currently the only way to achieve similar functionality is via triggers and stored procedures. Different development teams have different approaches to tackle it. This process is taxing, laborious and error prone (especially when alter tables are executed). Having this feature built-in offers a consistent way to store and access old versions of the data
