"I doubt 90% of the recreational boaters in the USA have any idea what the specific horn signals mean. 98% wouldn't know what ananchor ball or steaming cone is."

TRUE , but their Liar for Hire will.

Good insurance is not just paying some company big bucks..

Knowing the horn signals made my transit of the East River and NYC harbor much easier. Not all commercial traffic used them, but many did. Their intentions were much more clear to me from the horns than sorting out all of the radio chatter.
