No need for projections?

Simple question: If ArcPro can finally calculate area and distance geodesically, why do we need projections? Why not do all analyses in geographic coordinates and remove the distortion from flattening the curve??

When are projected measurements ever going to be more accurate than geodesically derived areas and distances?
