Policy is a separate matter. This is more about convenience/maintainability.

I use Quickbook now and I like that I do not have to generate the
documentation myself and keep the generated .html files in my repository.
All that lives in the repository is my .qbk content. Many other
authors/maintainers also do this.

If Sphinx was supported similarly, and I had the choice between Quickbook
and Sphinx, I'd probably move to .rst from .qbk.
