Refresh Portal vs Refresh Window

Other than avoiding any recalcs of calculated fields on a layout that are not displayed in a portal, triggering any script triggers tied to a layout, and avoiding any screen "flashing", are there other benefits to using Refresh Portal vs Refresh Window when updating a portal via a filter?

I'm working with a FileMaker 11 solution that will soon be migrated to 17, and since Refresh Portal wasn't introduced until 14, am wondering if it would be worthwhile to convert the various portal filters that are in use over to the Refresh Portal step instead of the current Refresh Window step.

The Refresh Window step is working for the solution now, and I fully expect that it will continue to work in 17, but if there are benefits to be had, it may be worth it to switch over to Refresh Portal after the 17 conversion.
