Any point in putting DCs as R2?

All of my DC's are 2003.

I'm going to be deploying a new DC at headquarters.

My question is, although I can't see any real benefit to deploying this DC with R2, perhaps someone here will say otherwise?

I'm perfectly content with deploying it as simply 2003 w/ sp1 but I wanted to check since I've been "out of the Windows loop" for the last 3-4 months...

I don't think so really. DFS works better with R2 and the Printer Manager is an improvement... but those aren't traditional DC jobs.
