A major advantage of doing that is animation (\pause) is possible when using these diagrams in presentations(based on beamer)

Following is an example demonstrating that (code released under BSD license)

1. A Better way is to use the PSTricks package. It has more features.

2. AFAIK PSTricks does not work with pdfLatex (which I use)
