I disagree with you.
Change set grouping is one of the benefits. Others are, for example code
isolation & promotion, ability to select the what CRs you want to
integrate, without depending on a developer's working copy, ability for
the developers to have save points for the CR being developed, among
I'm sure that -B/-b options don't give you all the benefits you get with
a CR branch.
