What is it exactly what XSETTINGS does what Xresources can't?

the subject line says it all: I wonder, why exactly and what
for XSETTINGS is needed? I understand that it's a very good idea to
have a common way to manage UI settings, heck I'm promoting against
toolkit propriatary dotfiles since years. But isn't that what
Xresources/xrdb does?

Just curious
