Other than blurring everything in the picture, of what possible use is
focusing past infinity?

John,
        I think it was more than just a renaming of the part. The MA-1
is 7.33 mm thick, which when used with the E-camera it falls a smidgen
short of the OM flange-back distance of 46.00 mm (ie 45.91 mm). OTOH the
MF-1 is 7.5 mm thick making it a gnats hair longer (46.01 mm). I don't
know if this makes a difference but I've heard that the MA-1 allows an
OM lens to focus past infinity.

I think the freebie ended when Olympus named the adapter MF-1 and added 
it to their product line.
