Some reasons for slicing:
1. to make small images out of larger images and improve
2. to identify areas that are going to be HTML text
3. to individually optimize areas of an image to the most

There's two uses for it:
Non web designers that like to design everything in photoshop
and then have
it magically turned into a web site. Slicing can accomodate
extent...but there's usually several drawbacks.
The other use is simply to be able to manage all the
individual images that
your site might be using in one Fireworks File. I'll have one
maybe contains the 5 navigation images, the 3 or so
background images, a
handful of icons, some banner images, etc.
That way I only have to keep track of one FW to create the
dozen or so image
files that my web site uses.
