Never, ever done it.

Track Changes
Auto-tables of content
Changing the default language from US English grrrrr

Templates and Colour Schemes - ie you *do not* hard define 
colours/sizes on each slide

Autofill options
Pivot Tables (with the downside of size of document)
Conditional Formatting
Paste Special options - particularly being able to choose whether to 
paste the formats or the formulas only

Generally: Paste Link - brilliant for putting together Word docs with 
figures (eg budgets) from Excel that are likely to change before the 
final document
