Default Setting up Mechanical_To actual Trim or Set up guides within larger print area?

Hi there,

Two ways i've seen mechanicals set up for the printer. I like to set up document to the actual trim and set up bleeds, live area guides and set up slug on the paste board. More straight forward!

The other way is by creating a document larger than the piece to be printed and manually putting in Trim, live and bleed in.

What do you think/do?
