Two main reasons I record a stereo track rather than two separate mono tracks:

1. Less chance for routing and panning errors.

2. Much easier to do clip simultaneous editing of R and L sides in one stereo track.

Most plugins that I use can work with the R and L sides individually should that be desired (though that would be rare for me to want other than a R or L track delay or the use of a stereo reverb)
