While I reckon deciding whether pd-l2ork offers more than pd is very 
much a personal value-driven decision, here are a few things I can think 
of that are unique to pd-l2ork:

*monolithic distro--one download has it all
*infinite undo and a number of usability improvements (advanced 
auto-patching, tidying up, to-front/back options, etc.)
*system-wide presets that can also distinguish between two instances of 
the same abstraction
*K12 mode that allows for newcomers to get started quickly, including 
easy interfacing with wiimotes, arduinos, and raspberry pis; this mode 
is interchangeable with the non-K12 modes and has been used in over 
dozen maker camps and workshops by middle school children all the way up 
to professionals
*accelerated SVG-based GUI (and a new alpha version that uses Chrome's 
node webkit thanks to the hard work by Jonathan)
*unique externals like disis_gpio and disis_spi that offer easy 
integration with RPi, including software PWM on all GPIOs and many other 
*out of box flext support with disis_munger~
*the most complete wiimote support for Linux including passthrough mode 
and newest wiimote plus devices using a libCwiid fork we maintain as 
part of pd-l2ork; in L2Ork we connect up to 18 wiimotes in the same 
space on a regular basis without any problems whatsoever
*out of box RTcmix~ external
*improved ggee/image external with support for transparencies, pngs, etc.
*iemgui objects that have handles for easy resizing and automatic font 
*searchable documentation browser
*object tooltips
*cord inspector
*over 1,000 patches and bug-fixes
