Well, I used to have problems with my graphiccard that hard locked the
system on startup. Being able to do boot into runlevel (RL) 3 without X
(that was back on SuSE), was really nice. I know single user mode can
handle this, but single user is not very comfortable (Who wants to work
with only one tty?).
So mainly its a matter of comfort and consistence with LSB.
Btw. I didn't realize that Debian uses other RL definitions until I
first tried to boot into RL 2.
