IRC has a fixed value of 12 MHz, but is the default input for USBCLKSEL, which is followed by a clock devider (and no PLL).

All other inputs of USBCLKSEL (system oscillator, USB PLL and main clock) can deliver frequencies >= 48 MHz which can be devided to the required 48 MHz for the USB peripheral.

So when is it useful to deliver 12 MHz (or less) to the USB peripheral?
