If any of these are important, then choose to make it more complicated.

Depends on the box. If it's a nice, straightforward rectangular box with the driver mounted normally, no great issue. If however, it's something mounted internally, like a Horn or TH, in a limited space or at a strange angle, having the holes the diameter of the machine screws means they're easier to fit without risk of crossthreading.
