Base-Flange  vs "old methods" for sheetmetal modeling

We have an ongoing dispute about changing our modeling of sheetmetal parts to the base-flange method. I can't see why anyone would still want to use the extrude or flat with bend lines methods for designing a sheetmetal part. What is the current method taught in college where they teach SolidWorks? Does industry have a preference?

I would appreciate knowing what's out there.
