What would the use exactly be of degrading quality of uncompressed audio?

To compress it more, obviously

Yeah but why would someone want to do that ? I like to listen to the best quality files possible, but maybe I am alone in that

or is this for nostagists of oldschool radio and vinyl lovers  l

If you cannot tell the difference between original and compressed versions then they have the same audio quality.

I'm afraid vinyl contains more noise than LossyWAV files.

nope, interested why there is such thing like LossyWav, it sounded a bit like the equivalent of PuregoldImpurifier to me

Why there are such things as MP3/AAC/AC3/DTS/WMA/OGG/MPC/Wavpack lossy ?

A silly question, because I didn't really think about using lossywav before.
SInce I sometimes digitize vinyls, I thought of using lossywav on the wave files. Vinyls have lower S/N ratio than CDs, so is using lossywav on vinyls OK? Noise level introduced will still be lower than the hum and rumble from vinyls?

Should be - I would suggest using at least --standard, if not --extreme for this as it is a master copy.
lossyWAV -q X -a 4 -s h -A --feedback 2 --limit 15848| FLAC -5 -e -p -b 512 -P=4096 -S-

I've used Lossywav on loads of vinyl. Works a treat. There's no noticeable additional noise introduced if that's what's worrying you.
