The one and only thing that the 68010 can do better than the 68000 is to move it's vector base to any location. This is probably what you mean by "advantage for WHDload", because you can make use of the quit-key.
As I explained an hour ago
, the ACA500 now has the possibility to move the vector base to a different position in fastmem, so the advantage of the 68010 has been added to the 68EC000 with external logic. This results in the same functionality as with the 68010, but the lower cost of the 68EC000 processor.
