Associating project fields to custom fields has a lot of advantages. Simply, powerful, just like with any other custom field.
Here are some examples:
You can see your project field when it is associated to a custom field in almost all JIRA screens.
JIRA does not provide us, on the creation issue screen, the project on which the issue is going to be created. For that, project fields could not be reviewed on issue creation screen.
It is possible to search in the issue navigator for your project field when it has a custom field associated.
It is possible to view in the issue navigator columns of your project fields when they are associated to custom fields.
It is possible to configure gadgets that work with custom fields with project fields now.
It is possible to view project fields values at issue screens.
