From what I'm seeing workers are used only for URL rewriting. This can be acheived much simpler with page rules.

Workers are also used for basic CORS headers, and stripping some other unnecessary headers. They're definitely not required, but I don't believe you can do URL rewriting with page rules; redirects, sure, but not rewriting.
