Actually, I think the advantage is to using \include: Then for a main document that includes many "subdocuments", e.g., chapters in a book, you can from the main .tex source with whatever you want in the preamble, use \includeonly to selectively process only what you're currently working on. In fact, it's not hard to whip up a macro so that when you tex the main document, it prompts you to type in which of the subdocuments to include for the run!
