Benefits of deploying to the main net over own-chain ?

Hi.

Assuming a dev house wanted to base a public-facing dapp on the EOS stack - what are the benefits to deploying it to the EOS main net rather than taking the code and constructing their own chain? (WAX, etc)

According to this seemingly well researched posts on github (https://github.com/EOSIO/eos/issues/4173) creating 10,000 user accounts would requires a stake of ~$10k USD (in EOS) which as the poster states, is a little crazy as the majority of those new signups might go on to be dormant accounts. And if there are 10k more signups next month and the next month and the next....

Obviously nobody is suggesting setting up 21 BPs and the other infrastructure needed to build one's own EOS chain is cheap or easy, but...

Thanks
