Actually yeah your right, as it specifically says that's an area it matters in. So yeah it will count against cumulative parry penalties*. So the advantage vs. hand based parries is you can do it while doing stuff with your hands that preclude using them to parry. But the disadvantage is you can only do it against grapples.

EDIT: so to answer the actual point about what's better, hands free or hand parry. Or needing to re-balance them. It comes down to what else is going on.
