Very true. One of the most disturbing things when styling a theme is to
workout the delta's. Very inconvenient. Probably the main reason why you
won't see a lot of 'special' treatment for blocks.

The only cons of this would be with autogenerated blocks. And probably
slightly increased memory usage, but that is simply squeezing the cons

Anyway, deltas are a misnomer as many other things.
