Data warehousing is one obvious application: data is immutable; have a sort key. So NN as a builtin once index structure is perfect for such case. It is only a matter of time for commercial analytic DB to pick up this idea, I would presume.

You're right, data warehousing seems like a compelling use case for learned indices. I'm primarily worried about OLTP systems, though.
