Where I would prefer a SAW:

Close-in terrain where the arming distance of the grenades (or the
of "friendly fire") precludes using an AGL.

Mobile operations without mechanized assets.  They're big, heavy, and
to fire either from a mount or tripod, so they're slow to deploy. 
you're gonna give the AGL to a power-armored trooper, then he could keep
and still fire snap-shots if that's how your PSB for powered troops

Missions with a high chance of non-combattants being stuck in the
It's hard to really _aim_ a grenade.

Anytime re-supply is likely to become an issue.  AGL's have bulkier ammo
machine guns, but when ROE's allow their liberal use, tend to eat that
just as fast as MG's.  So that makes it easier to re-supply MG's since
ammo contains more rounds in a smaller space.
