[pulseaudio-discuss] Tunnel Sink Question

The documentation for tunnel sink says:
Tunnel a remote sink/source to a local "ghost" sink/source. Requires a running PulseAudio daemon on the remote server
with module-native-protocol-tcp loaded. It's probably a better idea to connect to the remote sink/source directly since
some buffer control is lost through this tunneling.
Can anyone expand on "It's probably a better idea to connect to the remote sink/source directly"? What specifically
does this mean to connect directly. Is this referring to using the alsa-pulse plugin and attaching to some remote sink
using the "server", "device", and "sink" parameters in the .asoundrc file?
