What is subbing the plates?

I have done a lot of reading and I made a list of negatives for each base. Maybe these are wrong but it is looking like they are not

Glass:
Breakable
PIA to clean
Heat transfer from fingers (differing opinions about this so maybe the jury is still out)
heavy (not so much an issue now as I will be learning in a controlled still lifeish/studioish environment)

Trophy Aluminum:
Cost
Cutting (apparently the lip after sheering is an issue
Not reusable (though this might not be the case if the collodion is still wet)
