Unless I'm missing something, the primary issue with braid coverage 
is leakage at VHF and UHF. Example: you've got an MATV or CATV 
system -- when operating close to VHF and UHF transmitters, you 
don't want the transmitters getting in, and everywhere, you don't 
want your cable signal leaking out. This requires VERY well shielded 
cable, and careful attention to every single connection point. 

There are, of course, other issues with the shield of coax -- power 
handling, what happens at baseband (video wants copper braid), does 
it need to be flexed in use, etc.
