I'd argue for its audio precision, but then it's not realtime (by design)
in the same way that Pd is. Not sure what control stuff you could do in 
csound that you couldn't in Pd (?) Never really loved the score<->orchestra
dichotomy either, without that wall to negotiate I think you have more
freedom in instrument design and in generation.
