Why Not Just Strap a Tote to the Pack?

I've got a frame pack and I was recently sorting through my camping/hunting gear. It dawned on me that I could most easily fit all my gear and then some into a roughneck tote, then just strap it to the frame. I've seen several old photos of sourdoughs with boxes tied on this way. For the life of me I can't see any advantage of using a fabric pack over a plastic tote. The tote is 100% waterproof, tough, no more noisy than fabric once it's strapped down. And if I use an extra heavy duty one it can be used as a chair.

Am I missing something?
