Usually because I plan to drive without sliding on public roads, at least most of the time! :-)

The DTC helps me keeping the driving style tidy. And it reacts very quickly if I hit an icy patch in a corner, so it can help me save the car.

In earlier generations, the DSC was too slow. When driving an E90, I will switch the DSC completely off, as it tends to overcompensate when it reacts on top of my own reflexes. The system of me + DSC ends up being dangerous. In the F20, it feels safe. If I react correctly, the car will not do much. If helps me instead of fighting me.
So its a matter of preference. I agree its more safe. But i can drive faster with dsc off. And i like to correct wheelspin myself instead of electronics doing it for me

But i see your point.
