```You can convert to meshes at any point. Beziers give you a lot of control
with minimum control points - both for the profile and for the control path.
What advantages do you have by using meshes directly?

But that only works for curves, I think the proposal also included

You can already use any curve as the profile shape of any other curve.
Just
put the name of the profile curve in the 'BevOb:' space of the path
guide.
