Actually I don't claim that verbosity by itself brings benefit. Rather a more general method tends to involve more steps (which can be packaged into higher level functions). For example, while an adjustable wrench is more "flexible" than a single fixed size wrench, the adjustable wrench requires more steps to do the same thing.
