For starters:

  • Zero data loss capability because primary can ship online redo log to standby as it is written, synchronously if you like?
  • How about maintenance of 'your scripts' when you leave for another job? Is it as well documented as the Data Guard Concepts and Administration manual?
  • Are the script prepared for every and any catch regarding log gaps?
  • Can you elaborate on 'more', regarding control? What are you missing in managed standby?

Don't get me wrong: I have customers in my 'support base' that use SE with scripted standby too. But Data Guard defininitely offers some nice extra's!
