Well, I generally dislike proliferating preferences. The code is supposed to automatically fall back to full versions if the more efficient diffy version doesn't load. If that fallback doesn't work I'd rather fix that problem rather than avoiding it with a preference. The diffs are much smaller than full MCDs, so for server performance and conserving bandwidth they are preferable.
