Its strictly a preference thing, what I am accustomed to.
If you consider how a real railway is placed on a real landscape, it begins by identifying the features that they need to go around and joining the curves with tangents. Nature doesn't do straight lines and perfect circles, so in "terrain", curves of varying radii and tangents that are large radius curves are the norm.. On the flatland, straight track and uniform curves, but in hill country, the track accommodates the landscape, flowing across it

Would be interested in the modify, edit or split comment detail. There have been some advances in V5.2 on that, and I’m always interested in new use cases.
FWIW - Cornu are now fully splittable and you can add also pins to modify them to “pin” to follow any route if you dislike the default one. Pins are supported in modify by round-trip editing (Adjacent Cornu that result from a pin or split operation automatically open as a single Cornu with a pin at the joint which you can move or remove or leave ad you alter the rest of the curve). The only interesting edge case I have come across is if you split a Cornu, delete one half and then snap on a straight or curve. In that case modify/editing may change the shape because the end conditions changed (from whatever the split end radius was to the new joined track). We could add a check and recompute the curve when joining to an existing Cornu.
