JS API: the URLSearchParams interface vs. urlToObject()

I have found a nice way to get, and set, my x and y coordinates and zoom level from, and to, the query string of my url.

With the URLSearchParams interface I can manipulate the search parameters and with the History.replaceState() method I can modify the url.

It works alright. The search parameters in this link ArcGIS JavaScript with UK data - URL Parameters: x, y and zoomlevel (?x=345835&y=381863&l=14) will fly you directly to John Lennon Airport in Liverpool.

And now the question:

Is this the correct approach, or should I have used urlUtils.urlToObject() instead? What would be the pros and cons of either way?

What is your opinion?
