You should not write custom-set-faces by hand.

I've read this statement before, but I've never seen any explication
as to why.  Is it just because customize will blow it away?

Yes. Or you may blow away the settings defined through custom.

I use custom-set-faces in a separate elisp files, but not in my
custom-file.  I also never use customize, so maybe that's why I've not
seen any issues.

Any other reason to not use custom-set-faces?

Maybe it is impolite to those who wrote custom ... ;-)
