Is there any reason to move away from fstab on a systemd system?

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I'm on an Arch Linux system, which means systemd. In systemd there are native unit files for mountpoints, with the extension .mount. I've always just used /etc/fstab, which never gave me problems because systemd just picks up information from that. But now that I've actually read the documentation, I'm wondering if I should change to native systemd unit files. The Arch Wiki suggests that there's no benefit, because it says to populate your fstab in the beginner's guide. But I'm not sure. (HowTos)
