what are the pro's and cons of an embedded usercontrol V an external (compiled) usercontrol?

i can only think of these:
embedded pro: only the .exe and no .ocs needed

external pro: if there changes somthing in the usercontrol, not the whole .exe changes

i would like to see the thoughts of some experts
