Well, there is some benefit, but I'll admit that I debated it myself. By
using an external DHCP server the help desk person manage all my DHCP pools
from one user interface. He's not familiar with Cisco gear, but now he can
manage the space for BWA, CM, eMTAs, IP TV, and DSL.
Using an external DHCP server also allows me to log DHCP traffic and
requests. When I get an abuse report about a certain IP address I can use
the dhcpd.leases file (I keep some history) to identify the source of the
abuse (the username is in the uid).

Maybe, but probably not many as there is no real benefit to do so. Why
rely on something externally that the router can handle either by itself
or via the RADIUS server?
