IMHO, there is always a benefit of standardization best/common practices
* It lowers the entry-level to the language (no need for third-party
* It improves the education aspect (one standard way of doing it)
* It makes the language more coherent/stable (consistent design with other
features, stable API)
* It makes the feature a first class citizen (shows that the community
cares about this aspect of the language)

to name a few...
