I routinely replace screws, nuts, and bolts with A2 stainless equivalents purely to reduce corrosion, and to get hex / torx heads instead of soft Phillips.

That started back in the days when I started riding (and fixing) Japanese motorcycles: they were fitted as standard with titanium cored, cream-cheese headed bolts ... or that's what it felt like when you tried to undo them and then had to drill the sods out.
