well, you can use some other IDE that's a bit smarter than the flash one (flash develop, eclipse, heck..even notepad++), or if you have a lot of classes nested in pkg's. or maybe you want to edit the code without opening flash and compile the swf from comand prompt. or maybe for no reason :)

Reusabilty and organisation. It's easier to look through a list of text files for the code you want rather than opening up different Flash files and trying to search.
