Are you suggesting that these questions only have value when there are use cases associated with them? If there were use cases, how do you still determine the depth of what the interviewer is expecting. Please see edit**

comment OO Design related questions in technical interviews
"I like the question because it lets me see the person think" -> What exactly do you look for when you are evaluating the person's thinking skills? Is it the speed at which they solve the problem? Is it the final solution? Is it how deep they go in creating classes, interfaces? Is it how they demonstrate how much they know the OOP concepts (inheritence, polymorphism etc)?

I wasn't able to ask questions to clarify requirements as I was asked this as a part of an online test. I understand judging their communication skills may partly be the motive behind such a question. But does it really help understanding their analytical and design skills?

Making the question open ended is fine as long as I can ask the interviewer intelligently for specific information. When I was asked to do this online, all I could do is guess the solution. Do you typically ask design questions when you are doing an interview face to face?
