It's caught some stuff that went late and wasn't scheduled to.  Also helps 
when my clock's slightly off. =)

Doesn't really matter to me.  With very few exceptions, all my recordings are 
anytime channel-based - I rarely care to look at when it actually recorded.

I think it makes sense to, if it doesn't cause a conflict.  The original 
pre/post-roll stuff was written when there was only support for one tuner, 

I don't really see how 'record this much extra if you can without creating 
conflicts, and use other tuners if possible' is any less deterministic than 
the current behavior, really.
