Another purpose of a TXT record is to verify that an e-mail message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a reliable server - this is the so-called SPF protection, that prevents any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send spam making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You can include any other info you want to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
