Choosing a Task List vs a Project

So, I have a question that on the surface might have obvious answers but want to think through the potential implications for choosing a Task List vs a Project.

In theory a Project should have a defined start and finish for all tasks.  A Task List essentially becomes a "to do" list.  

Tell me what I might be missing please.

Task List Pros:  

*  Can be set up quickly

*  Preset to enable due dates and check boxes for completion

*  Can still assign people tasks and associated task status

*  Can still set up reminders for "Assigned To" resources

Task List Cons:

*  Dependencies are not available

*  Workflows not available
