It's just not much different from org-latex-classes. . .  Perhaps it
would be nice for reproducibility between documents.  But, yeah. . .

The nice thing is that such stuff can be handled pretty conveniently
on the TeX side so that documents can be used for different engines
cf. my other post.  I also use this for e.g. fonts; I like Linux
Libertine for the final version, but usually don't want to deal with
the slowdown of xelatex.
