My impression from running another organisation that used its charity
status to get discounts is that it's simply useful as an indicator that an
organisation is legitimately considered to be a non profit and it can be
trivially verified.

There's no central registry of non-profit organisations that are *not*
registered as charities, merely consulting the ABN database etc doesn't
necessarily tell you whether an organisation is non-profit. ACNC registered
charity status is a much better indicator of that.
