In most cases you don't.  What pushed the client I'm thinking of to
multihome though was the C&W/PSI peering issue and the threat of similar
issues in the future.  They only had connectivity to C&W and needed to
reach networks only on PSI.  Multiple BGP peers and full routes would have
worked for them in this case.  Customer routes and multiple defaults would
likely not have worked.
