I think that name tags don't really have much purpose. If there was a more useful situation like taming a skeleton or spider or dolphin then I think the name tag would gain more purpose. You could use a hostile mob like a skeleton to attack other hostile mobs. If you could make them stay, you could turn them into sentries. With a spider, you could climb on walls or ceilings. A creeper could become a walking bomb you could detonate. Maybe name tags could be crafted, but using more rare materials, making this a bit more difficult to accomplish.
There could also be a benefit to using a name tag on an animal you can already tame. Like how you can get a dog to sit and stay. Maybe you could hatch the Ender Dragon's egg and tame the baby Ender Dragon.

AND with the endermen.
Maybe you can craft them with iron ingots and paper.
