Convenience. Originally, the config.php only contained settings that you
didn't need to change a lot. Over time, it aquired more and more
settings that you wanted to change more often. And so you had to
download the file, edit it, and upload it again. The Configuration GUI
addressed that problem.

No, but it's a good thing to keep in mind. There's a simple hack for
running several sites off of one code base, but it would break with such
a cache (pretty much any cache files, in fact).
