Does purrr:list_*bind() supersede dplyr::bind_*() ?

Really just a question about style and preferred methods going forward with the latest major update to purrr. From what I can tell, both list_rbind() and list_cbind() function exactly the same way as bind_rows() and bind_cols(), respectively, except that the new purrr functions have more controlling arguments.

Are there any reasons to keep using dplyr::bind_rows() and dplyr::bind_cols()? Have they essentially been made redundant?

I notice one key difference is that to use list_rbind() the input data.frames must be put into a list; whereas for bind_rows they need not.
