Benefits of Contingent Values over Subtypes and publishing to ArcOnline

Can someone please explain to me what the perceived benefits of using Contingent Values are instead of using SubTypes?

Contingent values—Geodatabases | ArcGIS Desktop 

I understand that by using Contingent values you essentially have 2 lists (Domains), with the 2nd list being filtered by the selection from the first list. This compares to Subtypes where the selection of the first list would determine which secondary list another field looks to (multiple lists to pick from). 

 

Also, what I can't find anywhere is if I setup data using Contingent Values and publish the layer as a service to ArcOnline, will the Contingent values be honoured (and be editable via the Data tab on the service overview page as you can with Domains)?
