When to use NDEF and when not to

I understand from the demo app on the explorer kit that everything except the NDEF message to be displayed on the screen is sent across the NFC interface (between the NTAG I2C plus and the android phone app) is not NDEF formatted.

My use case is that I want to be able to send some chunks of data or commands back and forth between the tag (with  a host micro-controller) and an NFC phone in pass-through mode.


Question is, when and why should I use NDEF encapsulation of the data to be exchanged?
