Retailers like submersible pumps because they are cheap (more profit margin) and easy for the user to install. Run a submersible pump modified for inline use, and you will be amazed how much heat it puts out. That heat goes diminishes the cooling ability of your system if you run it submersed. Design the system right, and an inline pump is the only choice. Why compromise?

The amount of water in a system does not affect cooling capacity. If it did, our cars would all have reservoirs. At some point the water will reach equilibrium. The system with more coolant will just take a bit longer to get there.
The advantage of a reservoir is to aid in filling and bleeding the system. Personally, I like a reservoir at the top of the case and a bleed-drain valve at the bottom with the inline pump.
