“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

I've split that (and the original "what's it for") part of the question off into a separate one.

Make into one question (as answered) to prepare for split.

What side effects will this have? Is having Bonjour advertising enabled required for Handoff or Continuity?

@IanC.: I see it in scanners (e.g., iStumbler). Prior to Yosemite my machine was not listed there at all.

@Tetsujin: Disabling Handoff does not change my Bonjour visibility (I can still see "whats-my-name" for my machine from other machines). Is this also caused by Handoff (as patrix implies)?

If this is Handoff (as it appears to be from some answers below), at what point in the Handoff setup (or enabling/disabling) process does my machine become visible/invisible? Does it advertise for as long as Handoff is enabled; does it stop as soon as it's not? And to what devices is it visible (e.g., just devices using the same Apple ID?) Also, a command line way of enabling/disabling would be great (I'd like to turn visibility on/of with a script).
