This can lower down the performance of your website significantly if you have a lot of products/media on your store site.

There are many situations when store administrators would like to display different content on some of the web pages based on roles. Let us assume: if a user is logged in with "role A", you might want that user to see only few options on the webpage. But if a user is logged in with "role B", on the same web page you might want that user to see all options (just like access control list). This is when this solution comes in handy as you can have one single webpage but different information on it based on the role.
