You mean taking ukemi as opposed to being left a broken crumpled heap ... I don't think either leads very far.
Either way is not so good for me - but I think that the same really holds true for the nage. It's like punching something that always moves - you're in for a big change when you start in on the heavy bag.

Being able to have someone with real power throw you and being able to land safely is a pretty handy skill irrespective of its questionable utility in developing real power.
Nice to have - but is it worth the price for people who aren't really planning to go into that situation?

Best,

Chris
