Furthermore (and this may be my own specific problem), wire to rope halyards get stopped at the sheaves once the rope hits them (because the rope won't fit through the sheave designed for wire).

This is an inconvenience when it comes to finding a spot to secure my halyard shackles after dousing a sail.
