Mainly, my point is the ability to know your headwinds, to slow to a target "Indicated Airspeed", which could outweigh the small tube's drag (or even make subtle, inconspicuous aero mods to outweigh it).

For example, your target aero combined speed is 120 kph. If the headwinds are 20 kph, you know to slow to 100 to hit your target -- or at least slow a bit.

It's just another feedback device.
