Print with epslatex or eps with latex interpreter


Suppose that a plot is generated (with latex interpreter and svgconvert, if needed). To export as an eps file to be included in some main.tex file, the plot can be exported as

print -depsc foo1.eps

or as

print -depslatex foo2.tex

and inserted accordingly into main.tex

As far as I could understand, the first approach has the advantage that all the plot information is stored in the eps file, while the second approach split the plot information in 2 files (tex + eps).
However, the second is easier to edit labels, etc, and the fonts will match the same used in the main.tex file, while the first one will use some standard/fixed font.

Are there other pros and cons of each approach? What am I missing?

Kind regards
