Yeah the more I think about it the more obvious that solution becomes.
Basically its an end cap for the drywall sheet to prevent the drywall from
crumbling with age or absorbing water from the air. It's actually even
nicer because it helps hold the drywall together when you have to put screws
into it close to the edge. Normally that isn't a problem when you have two
sheets butted up against each other, the tape and the mud will keep it
intact. But on the outside edge you don't have anything to keep it from
pushing out/buckling under the screw. The J channel would give it some
structure and keep the drywall protected.
