It's no advantage at all; it is a fundamental DISadvantage to have the default 
be the simple file with lines concealed.  Of course that is the file you need 
to edit, but what you want to look at in the processed file, ie the fancy 
form.  It's like insisting that you only look at the .tex file, never the .pdf 
output.  The present setup is (and always was) a dumb decision (not mine!).
