I too have a Harmony (550 I think), and have wondered the same thing
for a while.  I currently have mine configured as a Hauppauge, but
have run out of buttons for some of the useful functions I would like
to include.  The key is finding a good remote (or even IR keyboard!)
emulation that has lots of buttons (earlier in the thread someone
mentioned the Sky Navigator?).  But for example in my situation, I am
actually using the Hauppauge receiver too, which doesn't listen to a
whole lot of codes.  So I'm limited until I pony up for a new
receiver, then it's on to find a good selection in the Harmony db with
lots of buttons.
