Aren't the advantages you have correctly described acheived at the expense of 
image quality?  Most digital projectors are limited to 1024 x 768 which is 
much less than should be achievable with projectors and slides.  It would be 
like like viewing on a high quality TV set.  Good enough for many purposes, 
but I would think a poor substitute compared to original slides and an 
auto-focus slide projector.
