They are useless in most situations, just an add-on for the makers. At one time none of the serious makers offered them. Unless there is something particularly destructive about the ground you are sleeping on. So they can be very worn, so long as they still provide whatever real or imaginary protection you needed.

Originally tents did not have sewn in floors, so a groundsheet could be useful, but where you put the tent or excavations might be necesarry to keep water out. With footprints they are doing so little suit yourself. I can't imagine replacing one every year, unless you camp on fresh tar, or something...
