Is there any disadvantage (or advantage) to not put add-on domain folders inside public_html but rather the user home?

I don't like the idea of having add-on domains' folder inside the "main" domain's root. So I've put the add-on domains in individual folders in /home. Is there any reason why I shouldn't to this? Thanks.

It is currently the cPanel default to have the addon domains added outside of public_html to prevent issues with .htaccess inheritance and better isolate the sites.  So what you are doing is just fine.
