Pros and Cons of Using a Single Theme for Multisite Setup

What are the pros and cons of using a single template for a WordPress Network? Currently we are allowing subsites to choose their own themes. I am wondering if it would make sense to pick a really nice theme for all of Buddypress and subsites to use. I think the consistency would be a big benefit. Teachers wouldn’t have to worry about the look of their site. They could just focus on the content. On the other hand, some teachers want a unique look.

For my Webmaster Blog I am using the same theme as the Network Blog.  I think it might make sense to really streamline all functions of wordpress to make a really simple and functional communication tool. I’d like to see if we could get a functional site that the user would never need to go into the dashboard.
