I have configured my cameras to do safety shift.

Example: While shooting some macro/close up work in Av mode with open aperture, e.g. f/2.8 or f/4.0 I see some interesting clouds. Shooting these clouds spontanously at f/2.8 + 1/8000 (the latter is the limit in shutter speed) is to bright just at ISO 50 - the camera adjusts the aperture to e.g. f/8 + 1/8000.

Shooting with 5D mark i I have not Auto ISO - only shutter speed and aperture can be "safety-shifted".
Most used tools: EOS 200D + EF-S 60mm + 4.0 / 70-200 IS AND/OR EOS 5D i  + 4.0 70-200 IS + 2.8 100 Macro

I think its another one of those settings for users who do not have enough knowledge to set the exposure properly. 

Sigh...

It's also useful for those of us who don't have anything to learn about exposing images properly, but who shoot in rapidly-changing light conditions, like wildlife and sports 'togs.

I used it on every body I owned prior to the 7D Mk II.

I'm curious why you would do macro work at 2.8/4?
