The big difference will be travel time and travel expenses and no reason to
build a big M/M station you hear just a few times during the year.

Any station you worked six times is just taking up spectrum in your opinion,
bur there might be others who still want a qso with it.

The M/M D offers interesting challenges, technical and organizational, to
which the various groups responded very well.
Does it make things better for the rest of us? I doubt it.
What we need are lots of stations to work. Once you're worked WW1X six times
(i.e. on six bands, as I did as NO8DX). they're just taking up spectrum. OK,
maybe they can serve a useful function as beacons CQing on a dead band. But
it's still better to have three or six or more callsigns active, giving the
rest of us more potential QSOs. 
I think the useful function of providing top notch remote operation
availability, in particular to the youth crowd, is a fine contribution. But
that can be done with traditional single site multi-op efforts. I don't see
where the distributed feature adds much.
