Pin Chuck or pin jaws do all they suggest as an advantage to their faceplates.  I rough all except spindles with my https://bestwoodtools.stores.yahoo.net/pinchucks.html pin chuck or pin jaws.  Inexpensive, safer roughing than spur center, like the faceplates, and since the wood shrinks virtually nil along the grain, dropping a bit into the pin chuck hole once the wood is cured is guided by the endgrain removing crossgrain for circular and a remount.
Better to follow the leader than the pack. Less to step in.

I have never used a modular system before but can see why people do.  Leave the one part on and remount it when you need it.
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.
