As a private person using the "A record only" way of receiving mail, I
find it useful.

It might be helpful in this context if you could elaborate a bit why 
you find it useful?

The only reason I can think of is if (web?) UI of DNS hosting company 
would make it burdensome to update both MX and the A record.

(<AADD02274043C6E6681E0407(_at_)p3(_dot_)JCK(_dot_)COM>), MX can refer to a 
name so for 
typical usage scenarios I can think of, just updating your A record 
would automatically update MX settings as well.
