Chipset Generic or Compatible?

Is there any reason to use the "Generic" chipset instead of the "Compatible" one, e.g. "A1200" etc.? The compatible ones change certain options like cia_overlay etc.

I noticed Generic is still the default on most emulators, and I think on WinUAE too from my last time using it.

I think it should be set correctly today: "Generic" is basically backwards compatibility option because back in the day it was default UAE config and it had to become default (unless specific quickstart config was chosen) when IDE etc.. emulation was added because there was very common (bad) config + KS ROM combination that would hang at boot if hardware was correct (It was A4000 ROM which was labeled as A1200 one)

Boot is much faster here in Generic chipset mode compared to A1200 for example...
