I just see it as too inconvenient.
Not if you have a daggerboard holder!
I don't usually put down the daggerboard until I'm sailing in more than 8mph wind, as the boat is faster without it (we race each other often).
I also remove it when sailing downwind (again, faster without it), unless we're in larger waves. I do think, with the daggerboard down, it adds stability in bigger seas.
Recently, I tried to turn into the wind to pedal out of a harbor area after launching from a boat launch in strong crosswinds. I could not turn! (I had not put down my daggerboard yet) After I put my daggerboard down, I had no further problems.
