My impression: parens are for code editing, for making it easy to write
syntactically correct code.  And as it has been mentioned, Emacs makes
that easy by providing highlighting and paren moving commands etc.

For reading (by humans) indentation is more helpful.  Indentation more
or less directly reflects paren depth.

And to make code even more readable, some people prefer to use
`rainbow-delimiters'.  I guess you would like it.
