It's a fair point that I was quite confortable with my system when actually a system link was being used but probably wasn't necessary.

Adjustments on the fly, taking new factors into consideration, creativity, spying and including new opportunities... all can be done "intuitively" if your mind is engaged at the right point in the process. I'm sure we could think of many more.
Not sure that the system link really stopped me thinking or being intuitive as if I'd stopped thinking I don't think I'd have realised the system link wasn't really necessary and then adjusted.
I agree that just having linking in your head means that you can have more flexible linking that means quicker adjustments are possible, for instance, adjustments in the project list.
