I think for standard PC timing in a network it is more than adequate.
Using PPS over USB does give you an improvement over just serial traffic so why not use it since it's free.
Sure, but I would think something with an input capture timer will produce a better result again. It is just unfortunate the RPi can't do it.
If PPS over USB is all you have, of course use it. But if you have a local
stratum-1 server it's likely to produce much better results, just using a LAN
Probably on the RPi using an input capture timer wouldn't produce much better
results than simply using the GPIO pins and the the built-in kernel PPS support
and reference NTP. I tend to think of the RPi alone as "tens of microseconds
or better", and capture timer (PTP) as sub-microsecond level. Both are quite
adequate for "standard PC timing".
