A keyboard like that easily provides more keybinding "namespaces", for
keys where c=control, m=meta, s=super, h=hyper.

For one you get a hyper key. So you go from 6 namespaces (c, m, s, cm,
cs, ms) to 24 (if you are willing to use all of the combinations).

You can easily configure a single key to be any of those 24
combinations so you don't need to worry about finger strain. For
example you can have a single key that is C-M-s-H. That namespace is
wide open. You can also add Shift to double things.

Another valuable feature is the ability to configure a key for
"strike" versus "hold". For example strike the enter key and send
enter. Hold the enter key and make it the Control modifier.

Configuring the keyboard can become a hobby in itself.
