What's the point of it:
In fact, many bots may need to make sure that people aren't multi-accounting, to prevent the abuse of a virtual-economy system, or just to "auto" kick the alts. Guilds could handle easily the multi-accounting thanks to those bots. For exemple, a banned user from a guild may have several accounts on this guild already. Which means he could keep on acting in improper manners on this guild, from his other account. That's why it could really be useful if a bot could recognise if the banned user have other accounts thanks to the IP.
Why would the API provide it as encrypted:
Because having the real IP address of someone would be a privacy issue: you can for exemple locate someone thanks to his IP address.
