Replacing hubs is a lot of work plus there is often the cost of new spokes. I want hubs that simply work or at least all parts are serviceable or replaceable is a real plus if only to save the need to rebuild the wheel. Swapping rims is quick and easy. Swapping hubs is a complete rebuild, no easier than a wheel from scratch.
