Back on topic, sort of.

Maybe belt-based distributions are easier to put "in phase".
I don't know. Three people I know had a shop put them together out of phase, off by a tooth or two. No damaged engines, fortunately. Though the belt can't really be blamed for that. Just that oil change places and tune-up shops think that it's so much easier to change a belt, that even they are competent to do it.
