Extending the device also reduces the likely hood it will get jammed on your puffy jacket or other soft goods. It also keeps it in view which said puffy might otherwise obscure.

It's also easy to hang heavy loads off a belay device that has been extended, if it is necessary to abseil with heavy stuff.

Finally the abseil can be managed with one hand whether you use some additional brake or not.

Won't stop you zipping on the end of your line if that's your caper, or nightmare.

I think it's best to think of any variety of autoblock as a brake rather than a back up.
