I would imagine that there could be certain advantages doing it via
NFS instead of on the NFS system. For instance, you could use dpkg to
install packages, but have certain directories (eg /usr) mounted from
different places.

With nfs mounts though, it becomes easy to mount / from server:/nfsroot
and /usr from server:/usr for instance. And dpkg doesn't know any different.

With chroot environment though, AFAIK it is not possible to access
/usr from within the /usr chroot jail (unless Linux 2.4.x changes

Of course, this brings up other issues that are beyond the scope of
this thread, but hopefully you will get the idea I am trying to bring
