Does it take longer to do. I would think stripping the romex and then the wire would be a pain.
Haven't stripped it in. I usually wait until the painters are done. :)

Not really

For instance, 4 pieces of romex going into a 3 G nail-on box might all be on one stacker, and be cut in all at once, and in an order that would allow for said loops (if needed) to be pulled into the box w/o twist of hangup

What is the advantage of this? Why not just stab your wires into the box, make up your grounds and be ready for trim?
a continuous run, less chances of a terminal failure, less waste, less material such as greenies, once a custom to, less time.

Shock is a penny pinchin miser with material and labor. Every little drop in the bucket helps when you have to haul ass to be competitive.
Inspectors always seem to be impressed with this method. I had one mumbling over 3 two wires under a staple, he the investigated a few outlets, said nothing and placed a green sticker in the window.
