My reasoning is the DOC variance between tiles, causing additional work to clean it up. If the spoil board and positioning is accurate, the carve will be consistent for each tool change, since the cutter stays static in the collet and the zero remains static.
That sounds like a good theory. Might even work.
However there is a huge "IF" in that theory:
"If it's accurate and repeatable..."
Moving work is way less accurate than changing tools and rezeroing on the surface.
If a person is using the caveman technique of touching off tools using a slip of paper, etc, then your theory might work better.
