What does one do with an M. Div degree?  or rather, what does one do with an M. Div that can't be done with a different Master's degree?

Depends on the degree - a lot of M.Div degrees include material on things like pastoral counselling (which is not the same as, say, mental health counselling, but obviously has some overlaps in specific places), on communicating complex ideas about religious, ethical, moral topics clearly (some programs, that's all about preaching, some programs, it's a lot more general.) Interfaith and ecumenical work (so some comparative religion, ways to work with people coming from other faiths). If you browse M.Div programs, you can get a general idea.

If/when Cherry Hill gets their accreditation, I'm really tempted to do a M.Div to go with my MLIS. (There are jobs in my field where having a second master's, regardless of the field of the second one, could have some benefits, as well as the more obvious jobs where a second master's in a relevant field would help, so it doesn't make sense to do it without accreditation, and I don't want it quite enough to figure out how to make a face to face seminary work out in practical terms.)
