Default For what situation/purpose would you set Project Tempo/Time Signature to "Time" mode?

For what situation/purpose would we set the project's Tempo/Time Signature timebase to "Time" vs. the default "Beats" mode? When would you want a tempo change to NOT fall on the musical grid?

Note this is different than setting ITEMS to "Time" mode.

To adjust (warp) the grid to recorded audio without changing the audio.

When I set this to Time mode the grid does not move with the tempo markers - they are independent. So, how do you use that to warp the grid if the grid doesn't move?

I have been tempo mapping audio by doing the opposite (and maybe the hard way). I put the AUDIO track in Time mode and then place markers on all the downbeats with Tempo/Time Sig in Beats mode. I then use the script "create tempo map from markers" which creates a tempo track with matching grid.

I'm having a really hard time grasping Time vs. Beats mode for the different tracks and markers. The Reaper instructions don't say much about it. Is there a good video somewhere that explains these settings and how to use them?
