I think the purpose of precise use of the throttle is to maintain a speed from which we could stop in distance we can see to be clear. The distance to the limit point only remains constant while the limit point is matched on a constant radius bend.
For me, if you are in a responsive gear small additions/subtractions of throttle allow you to keep the limit point at a constant distance through the bend where it is varying slightly (and maybe you are having to adjust position slightly due to the road surface). If the bend 'suddenly' tightens up (as mentioned at the end) then we can restart the system, close the throttle fully and optionally add some brakes before the 2nd part of the bend.
