Some use cases:
- stadiums tend to have named gates. Your ticket tells you which gate
to enter at, and people use them to meet each other.
- the local botanic gardens has named gates - they serve as landmarks
("go in gate E, then down past the duck pond")
- large industrial areas and research parks use them for deliveries etc.

So it's really naming the entrance rather than the gate per se, but
they're often called "gate X".
