Barry Sless has this on a couple guitars I built for him and he really likes the subtleties he gets from the blend knob...like at the start of the song, little or no effect then as the song progresses the effect gets blended in more, more dynamic and tweakeble. But for the guys playing in traditional cover bands or want that thing, i recommend the toggle - as well as the buffer always on. Certainly you can do both, just another switch.
Both would be cool ... even just a pull pot on the blend knob if they make one to eliminate an extra toggle. You could roll back or increase the delay or compression or overdrive, or, if you are using a crazy-ass fullrange setup like my Fractal, have one amp block in the effects loop and another out, and then blend from one into the other right from the guitar. Dang.
