These zero-ohm resistors have to be soldered *after* the PCB was heated of course, that means per hand, with a soldering iron. On a conventional PCB, these resistors aren’t required at all, so the advantage of the built-in heater is somewhat mitigated. Perhaps still better that soldering a LGA IC per hand.

Maybe such a PCB is a good thing for small adaptor boards that don’t contain much more than a tricky-to-solder IC (SSI2130 for instance).
