You'd have to use the OS restore discs that came with your MDD to get OS 9 on it.

I just went back to OS9.2.2 this afternoon. I'm still configuring it, but i like it. My Pismo, albeit maxed out (aside from G4 and SSD) was sluggish even with basic tasks as office of basic browsing on Tiger.

If you don't need it for programs you already possess I could only think of Gaming or curiosity. Of course you can do several things with OS9, but why, when you are doing it already under OS X?
