Okay, I'll try to think up some more reasons for having separate floppy & Paula sound...

If you have decent external speakers connected to your laptop, you could configure floppy sound to come from the laptop internal speakers, leaving the external speakers to handle Paula sound. Kind of like a real Amiga where the floppy sound comes from the computer and Paula sound from the TV/monitor.

If you're recording Amiga music to disk (WAV or MP3) that could also be useful since you probably wouldn't want floppy sounds in the recording.

By keeping Paula and floppy sounds separate, you could let Windows handle mixing them when necessary. If the sound card hardware can efficiently mix streams, that could reduce the WinUAE CPU load slightly.

That's pretty much all I can think of for now.
