I disagree. Like everything else, it depends on what it is that you are doing.

If you're going to halt execution anyway and/or force a redirect... or
anything else where you'll just be calling exit(), then waiting any
longer than you have to wait is pointless.

Sometimes, you don't really need any of the core WP functionality,
because you got passed in what you needed via a POST or GET.
