I think that for most people who tried it:
1. dkms vs in-core module: dkms loses
2. dkms vs other form of external modules (kmdl or fedora-style) : dkms wins.

I know which form I took as base when I had to package ivtv 0.8 last

Also dkms will increase the pressure on not applying fedora-specific
patches over the upstream kernel. Don't know if it's a good or a bad thing
(I know davej's opinion)
