I use my BC as a BC most of the time, but you can bet your bottom dollar that I'm competant at using my drysuit as a BC. It's another tool in your bag of tricks and IMO a person should be comfortable doing it either way.

I was taught to use the drysuit as a BC but learned the other method later on which is how I usually dive in it. I think most courses teach a person to use the drysuit as a BC for the most part and IMO it's not an easy skill for a new diver to pick up and do correctly every time. It would be much easier to just say use your BC and remove the squeeze with the drysuit.
