There is some benefit. But, only for new texts. One benefit is, we would 
have no doubt how a text came to exist.  Another, is that we would know 
right away when a text was done. Also, there was some talk about inviting 
scholars to submit their unpublished works. The process for that would seem 
a lot cleaner if we didn't have to send them somewhere else first.

On the other hand. CCEL can choose to do or not do a text without us having 
to debate its doctrinal purity.
