If you don't have to, then don't.
The argument comes down to understanding why you would ever want to. I'd argue there are a few cases for this. This is not one of my "don't ever do!" items.
When you restore IBM i can 'defer' the restore of the logical files until the physical file is restored (with currently supported versions of the OS).

If you have two disparate vendors with their own data libraries and you want to build a logical joining them, you may end up with a cross library logical.
