I wondered about that at the time, but the Path technique has several

You are not limited to 4 sample points.

 * you can keep points and target layer in synch using the links

If this is the goal. Keeping them fixed in relation to the image might
be a different goal.

 * you have sub-pixel accuracy

If this is so desired, then it is an advantage for paths.

Neither paths nor sample points are what you really want it you need
markers in an image, though - the numbering would be really nice, fixing
them to either the image, a layer, a path would be useful as well.

In that regard, the ingenuity of script writers to use paths for that
sort of input plays out as a disadvantage for GIMP, because otherwise
someone might have implemented such markers already.
