You are also saving a lot of time not having to deal with deep cleaning the cassette, jockey wheels, and rings.
I have added one step to Oz Cycling method, I yank my cassette, put it into a bowl, and pour boiling water onto it. I then use the rest of the boiling water on chain. While the chain is getting the wax treatment, I wipe down the cassette. My cassette has never been cleaner... I have done the same with chain rings, by putting them in a pie pan, using the boiling water, and they come out pretty darn clean. My drive-train is ready to go, long before the chain is done cooking.
