DCC wiring question

I'm still confused regarding conventional DC wiring and DCC wiring. If you're wiring DCC from scratch and have only one booster you can wire track feeders every so many feet from the track bus. Now with common rail wiring in DC you can create blocks by gapping one rail with the other rail being the common rail. Is there any advantage to wiring like this in DCC? If there is a problem in any block won't the booster shut down which just eliminates any attempt to finding the problem block?
