What is duct tape's actual purpose?

It seems like duct tape is really temporary fix for everything.

Obviously (or not) is is not meant for ducts.

Main questions:

  • What is duct tape's actual purpose?
  • When should I use it for a permanent fix?
  • Is it really a product with no intended purpose other than for people to be creative in DIY and repair?
