i don't see any major advantage: to be able to load data with the plugin it is at least necessary to know the right gpsbabel parameters, and it can take a lot of time just to try and eventually fail.

On the other hand saving a gpx as shape, editing it, and re saving as GPX takes just a bunch of seconds.
