Haha, you wouldn't think such a minor "feature bloat" in vim would be
so often used. I do the same thing... I a little annoyed when I use
a vim emulator that doesn't have ctrl+a and ctrl+x support. It's
basically a handy basic calculator. I do addition/subtraction on large
numbers in code (handy when making adjustments and dealing with pixel
width/padding issues).

I actually sometimes want multiplication/division in vim, but I guess
addition+subtraction is enough feature creep for one editor ;).
