Pros and cons of Publishing infrastructure

Drawbacks to using the Publishing features are:
 
  1. You can't turn the features off; there's no going back
  2. Loss of the Minimal Download Strategy functionality
  3. Loss of Save Site to Template functionality
  4. End users will have to be trained on the new functionality
 
On the other side of the argument, you do gain a lot of functionality. A lot.
 
  1. Changes to navigation
  2. Publishing page layouts
  3. Additional webparts
  4. Content types
