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.
