I'm glad to see this opinion. It states my thoughts precisely.

I've gone the opposite route -- converting away from mirrored load-source -- 
but never converting to mirroring from an existing RAID5 configuration. Given 
the preparation and time involved contrasted with the questionable reward, and 
even ignoring the small risk in the procedure itself, I can't come up with any 
good reason to do this.

(...though I'd gladly be educated.)
