I think what I said was probably more like "Why do we use PF for ocean 
connectivity, when continent numbers do this already for land?"

The advantages and disadvantages of using continent numbers are well 
known.  It is an approximation but much faster.  But someday computers 
will be fast enough so that PF is sufficiently fast.
