Actually, you do not.  Say you split your settings into .emacs, file
A and file B.  If only .emacs has been loaded, then the
customizations in file A haven't been loaded, *so they won't be
written out when you save your customizations*.  They will be "out of
the loop".

If you do load them, then when you save the customizations, it will
split them back out to whatever files were loaded.  It is a very
straightforward concept, but turns out to work very well.  In three
years of usage, I have not found any complications.

Nope, just tidyness.  I love things to be beautiful.
