Are there any advantage of using TLC over hook make_rtw_hook?

When create custom code generation target files and script, the author has the option to use pure TLC scripting language or <target>_make_rtw_hook.m script. As I understand one can do almost everything in make_rtw_hook.m script using native matlab scripting language as when using TLC scripting langauge. Also, you can probe the Simulink model using matlab script and get the same information as you would from TLC scripts (typically available from the .rtw files). So, for modern targets - is there a need to rely on TLC scripting language at all? If yes, under what circumstances does TCL shine over matlab scripting.

You can refer to the following documentation link for more information on STF_make_rtw_hook functions
In particular, from my understanding of the overall flow, the hook functions are a utility which can be used to customize the build process at certain phases of the build (for example interfacing with external tools), while the TLC scripts are directly involved in the actual code generation from the SImulink model.
Hope this helps
