I don't know about you people, but my most recent experience was
running The LaTeX Graphics Companion (quite a complex book) a million
times, while preparing new pages for a reprint. i have quite a  fast
computer, but it still takes 3 or 4 or 5 minutes to run the whole
book, as opposed to 10-20 seconds for an easy chapter. so i want to
keep \include, thanks! in addition, having a single place in the
master file with the \includeonly is much less error-prone for the
editing than commenting and uncommenting a slew of \input lines.

not that this invalidates the discussion, but just a vote from a
\include lover...
