P&IDs in Paper or Model - P3D 2014

Which is the 'better' space for P&IDs?  Model or Paper?  So far I can't see any particular difference so wanted to check the consensus of opinions.

I wouldn't do it in paper space. P&ID software is designed to work in model space. For example, using "Open Connected DWG" function in OPC will open and jump the other drawing in model space. If you are doing in paper space, it would not be able to zoom to it.


There are a couple more problems but i couldn't remember it now.
