USGA marking works fine for ball golf where they haven't needed to develop as sophisticated definitions of skill levels as DG. We've done it because DG is different enough in several ways and has different technical needs for design. The only real difference in measurement between BG and DG comes about in weak doglegs where in DG we might go straight line measurement because higher skilled players can throw that line instead of following the designated fairway like ball golf does regardless of skill level. Seems to make more sense when you have the knowledge.
