It all depends on your audience. For fine typography, yes, of course.
For Joe Sixpack, who just wants to write email to his grandmother,
he's best off saving the memory and harddrive space needed for the big
font. But for people who want to view a wide variety of scripts in one
screen, with consistency being more important than typography
(like many of the people on this list), a single Unicode font is perfect.

In any case, some scripts just go together. Mathematicians and
linguists frequently use Latin and Greek together (cf. IPA) in ways
that require consistent font looks.
