Putting decoders into points and signals does help with route programming. I am a fan of mimic boards (or at least something visual) so do not like/enjoy changing points using a hand held controller, but some people find it simple to do.

From personal experience, it is a lot easier to correct incorrect route programming when you use a PC to run that side of it (you don't need to have the PC run the trains as well) rather than trying to work out which diode in a diode matrix has been put in incorrectly.

Horses for courses, but for longevity, if an accessory decoder has 8 outputs, then I would only wire 4 double solenoid devices to it.
