I think its a brilliant way to find use for the costume cinematically.
It also makes for one of the best emotional moments between Wolverine & Mariko. To see this monster butcher all those people & then realize its the man she loves...she can't get close to him to calm or console him...when they lock eyes through the mask she sees just how far away from her he is now, and so does he. She cries, he goes right back to killing.
