My main reason is that we are compiling with different compilers for different platforms and -Wpedantic at least promises to keep the code closer to the standard and thus better transferable. I never tested whether this is actually true, but I like the fact that the project currently compiles with gcc, clang and msvc and welcome every tool and option that helps me to keep it this way.

I cannot think of any but to be honest I cannot even tell exactly which warnings are enabled by which of the -Wall, -Wextra and -Wpedantic flags and it is surprisingly hard to find out.
