Road vs Mountain Pedals

I guess this isn't entirely a C&V topic but I do have a C&V angle.

Is there any real advantage to road pedals over mountain pedals?

I use SPD-compatible pedals on most of my bikes, because I like the convenience of being able to easily walk in the shoes. My shoes are either Mavic MTB, Shimano MTB, or other two-bolt shoes.

For the Parallel Universe Look B. Hinault (that's the C&V angle) I'm thinking about using road pedals. For the looks and weight. Carbon body Look pedals most likely. But I'd need to get one or maybe two new pairs of shoes (summer and maybe winter). And learn to walk in them.

What are the pros and cons of using road pedals vs SPDs?
