Where the dongle is actually superior to the authorization method is for professional engineers who work in many different studios, often in different cities. They can carry all their authorizations on an iLok and it doesn't matter how many different systems they work on.

Also, authorization systems are a big pain in the arse if you upgrade your hardware configuration frequently.
