The advantage of not triggering this for everyday users is that we avoid
the uncomfortable random long load times.  Force the "users" that are an
actual burden on your site into doing something useful - firing your
cron jobs and eating the load times so regular users don't have to.

Not suggesting this as a total replacement for any other solution, but
it could offload quite a bit from other avenues.
