One more advantage of making the Text into Symbols is the ability to
change the center point. For instance it may work better to move the
center of the Symbols made from the letters from dead center to the
baseline centered at the bottom of the letters. The letters would then
ride on top of the line instead of centered on it. Though you could
create the same motion either way, one way might be easier to implement
than the other depending on the particular animation.
