Yes, a lot of advantages. One is speed, another is the ability to store
any kind of data including binary. Once you start using custom
properties you won't use fields any more for anything but visible text.
Accessing a custom property is faster than field access by some
magnitude, second only to script-local and global variables. Custom
properties can store whole files or applications, images, arrays,
SSL-encoded data, fonts, entire databases, almost anything you can think of.
