 The disadvantage is that you are not using, say, a 72pt-Font, but a
scaled-up 18pt one.  Unfortunately(!!) this doesn't make any
difference with most Postscript fonts you get these days, but with
fonts of high technical quality such as Adobe Minion, it does.
Whether a 72pt font matches your intended use better or worse than a
scaled 18pt one, I can't decide -- but keep in mind that they are
different beasts!
