ASP.NET Core might not use a complicated hierarchy of XML configuration files anymore, but if you host under IIS, then IIS and web.config are still the best of friends. There is some XML configuration required to run Core under IIS, specifically the part to reverse proxy all incoming requests over to the ASP.NET Core module and ultimately into the Kestrel server.
Other pieces of web.config still work in the new world of ASP.NET, too. For example, IIS will still honor rewrite rules in web.config.
