Up here housing is expensive enough that the basements are heated
living space in the large majority of homes.
And i did not say the "lost heat" was a benefit - I just said it is no
big deal. Nothing to make a tankless an advantage over.

Only for the power used by the POU which only heats the first couple
gallons, at most - and keeps that amount hot - and CAN be put on a
timer if water usage is predictable. For instance, the POU can come on
early in the morning to provide instant hat water for the morning
bathroom use, and then come on again for evening use.

And how does that tank work with a shower?
Don't you wind up with real hot water, then it peters
out as the cold water in the hot water lines refills it.
To be followed by the temperature rising back up
again once hot water from the main water heater
arrives? I would think it would make for a real
interesting first few minutes.
