I bought a Thunderbolt cable to connect my Air with my iMac for Target Display and Target Disk usage. Are there other uses for the connection besides these two?

It will be useful for any conceivable TB accessories you might purchase in the future.

So in the short term, at least with iMac connectivity, there aren't any other uses, I take it?

Does the new iMac really have target display mode? I thought that died out a couple of years back, and before the advent of thunderbolt...

I think TDM still works on the 27" iMacs.

Yup. At least the 2011 variant that I have works.
