I thought of another point.

With travelers you can have settings and pre-assigned "gears", numbered even.

Can't see how you can do that with split mainsheets.

Another one on the plus side is that the absence of a traveller (depending on its location of course) will not result in anybody's fingers lying twitching on the deck.
