Especially if it could be pre-seeded.

For example: Imagine setting up a bunch of machines all at once to be distributed to various locations after the install.  You can use pre-seeding to answer all the questions while you go off and get a cup of tea.  It might be better to have them all install then shutdown, rather than install then reboot — wasting power and requiring a manual shutdown before moving to the target location.
