Basic Blu-ray DTS eac3to question

I was following a guide on Blu-ray to MKV conversion and it stated that for DTS audio tracks, the following command format should be used:

eac3to “<drive>:\<folders>\<file name>.m2ts” <track>: “<drive>:\<folders>\audio_track<track number>.dts” -1536

and further more that Surcode was required for this step.

However, from a bit of reading about I found that I could just extract the core DTS track by using the -core option in place of -1536 in the above command. This doesn't need Surcode and the resulting track still muxes and plays fine with the movie.

I assume I'm losing out somehow by doing the latter, but what? I know I'm not getting the full original quality DTS from the core track, but is there any advantage to doing that if you are going to re-encode it to "standard" 1538 kbps DTS anyway?
