    Well, it is one way to show rigor, but not the only way. College classes can have very different curricula and syllabi. With AP and IB on your transcript, a college pretty much knows exactly what you've studied. They're more or less standardized.

    CC/DE classes are more useful if you plan to attend a public college, especially one in your home state, than to an ivy league aspirant. Unless, of course, that ivy hopeful has exhausted all the options offered by his/her high school. Some states will guarantee those credits will transfer to that state's public four-year schools, but there are no such guarantees they will transfer to ivies, or any private college.
