This is so you can use sling tanks and or have a place to clip on lights, cutting tools etc. If you still have two more D rings that could be for a crotch strap. One D ring for the front and one for the backside. The neoprene sleve could be for the crotch strap to prevent it from wearing through your wet or dry suit. Crotch straps are important to keep the tanks properly positioned. I use mine as an anchor point for my scooter as well. Bungie cord can be used to secure the inflator from a wing. In tech diving we use bungie cord to secure a second stage as back up. The bungie goes around the neck and the octo sits under the chin so it can be easily located in case of emergency.
I use my VDH plate a lot. I dive almost exclusively dry. I often sling a pony with a single hose reg and an inflator hose on it. I use it to run my drysuit and that also gives me a bailout. This way I can dive single stage regs like my DivAir or Healthways and still have buoyancy control. I almost never use a wing with that set up.
