The only advantage to AF-S is the AF Assist light on either the camera or flash, so in really low light conditions, I still end up switching to AF-S when using AF-On. Otherwise there is no need to ever select anything but AF-C

Having the VR run when focusing means the VF is steady now. Although the VR start up time is so fast that the shutter release action is enough time for it to stabilize the instant before the shutter opens, purpose of the VR activation during AF-On is for VF and AF and metering sensors are stabilized also. So the new method is an improvement in all but battery life.
