I'm also jumping in a bit late too, and having only used Drupal on 3  
fairly small sites may not have the full picture but...

- I find it useful to have the admin as part of the front end site

- My clients find it useful and easier to get their heads around the  
idea of navigating to content and hitting 'edit'
As others might find it a requirement :-)
	# Separation of content from presentation
	# In-place commenting on content
	# In-place editing of content

- The ability to override when an 'Admin' theme is present otherwise  
falling back to the front end theme is appealing.
Why not make the admin theme selectable from the settings?
