Actors are just as vulnerable to the "new threads/processes are expensive" issue as anything else, and by using a dynamic pool appropriately you can amortise those costs across multiple instances.

The point is to expose a less opinionated threading model in a more readily accessible way. Executors and futures are *very* opinionated about the communication channels you're expected to use (the ones the executor provides), while pools are just a resource management tool.
