Explicit wire-control adapts itself to information you want to display.
Wire helps to evaluate possibilities for future strokes when using 
specific brushes (grab/crease/pinch/smooth...).
But it does not necessary require to display highest level to be useful. 
It can help to take decision to switch to a lower level to sculpt.
Base-mesh reminds UV seams, UV Islands, vertex color, weight groups, 
vertices influenced by shapekeys.
It explicits borders or areas that you may want to avoïd while sculpting 
because it correponds to a node material transition.
So, it is less useful. Now, that we have hiding and masking.

In 2.49, multiresolution was not a modifier. The feature was lost while 
2.5 interface changes when multi-resolution became a modifier.
