I'm a fan of it for gravel.

If your bike has clearance for 42mm Sawtooths that's a pretty good setup for tubeless -- wide tires that can run low pressure.

Some people who have tried road tubeless on skinny tires at higher pressure have reported difficulty... but then I've also heard that there have been improvements in that area. I wouldn't know, I don't have road tubeless.

A cheap alternative for flat protection that I've used with good results is to squirt some Orange Seal (or Stans or any sealant really) in the tubes themselves. It requires tubes with removable valve cores, but it's really easy to do.
