Comment (by johnbillion):

 The benefit is reduced complexity and increased performance in the theme
 template hierarchy, and removal of a feature which -- as demonstrated
 above -- is almost completely useless.

 If someone can show me a theme which is using a `paged.php` template in
 the way in which it was designed (eg. without any other archive template
 such as `category.php` or `archive.php`, I'd genuinely like to see it.
