Probably dependent on "philosophy" and habit.
I guess those who use system protection either don't keep recent images, or combine data with system images, or are leery of doing image restores because they don't trust images. Might have mostly to do with comfort level and "convenience."
Since I'll restore an image at the drop of a hat if I see any problem at all, I've never used system protection. But it's pretty slick, and I've seen where it's saved a lot of peoples' bacon.
The way I see it, imaging can replace system protection, but system protection can't replace imaging. After that it's a question of what overhead you prefer.
