Time for The Dave Stevens Anvil of Reality®

All of that is pretty spot on.

Pulling temporary wires through tubes isn't something that a touring show wants to do for the reasons laid out.  Using and troubleshooting house cabling typically takes as long or longer than just dropping the already configured snake.

Smaller local shows typically have a little more flexibility for pulling stuff through a tube, especially if they don't have cables that are as tour durable and want some protection.

The absolute ideal scenario is a chase way with a lid that can be opened.  Harder to get that installed in an outdoor venue though

If you are digging a trench, then 2 x 6" pipes is well worth the small extra cost, with one continuous draw rope up one, down the other. At some point you will get a kink and a jam, and two bores is safer.
