AFAIK the goal of ALFS is to abstract from a shell, making a profile, in
order to increase reusability(?). The other advantage in my mind, is
that the syntax is somewhat simpler than the shell, so someone who is
not a shell wizzard can write a profile.

But if you are talking about a CALFSAN (Comprehensive ALFS Archive
Network), it can be a good idea.
