[Brett Sherman] "To me that's not an advantage of a Precomp, but rather an advantage of being able to have multiple Compositions within a Project, which everyone admits is a weakness with Motion. In Motion, you can solo a Group Layer and set your view to an orthogonal view which is basically the same as working with an isolated Precomp in AE. Or you can edit it in context of everything else in the Composition. AE works only in one way."

Maybe we're saying the same thing, then?

With only a single composition in Motion, there is no need at all for precomps. However, since Ae can have as many comps in a project as you like, a precomp becomes a valuable organizational tool: a way to cleanly reuse and update a common element across as many other comps as you wish.
