Supermux mapping preference

Hi everyone.  First, I work for a Local Exchange carrier.  Building a 1 gig non-switched optical wave circuit through multiple 6500s and Central offices and a data center.  Circuit will work through Supermux cards set up as SONET.

Question is, when mapping, why would we set this up as 7 STS3Cs instead of 21 STS1s?  Both equal the 1G bandwidth of course but just looking for the benefits or hard reasoning for the STS3C mapping.  Thanks all!
