They also allow you to extend the functionality of the entire Interface hierarchy of classes by adding new methods with implementations.

Of course, you can already do this with Extension Methods, which allows you to extend things in the context of what your are doing, depending which extension methods you include in your project in your using directives.

I can see use cases for both, but I really like Extension Methods for the ability to extend a class without having to do anything to the class itself. Very SOLID.
