Seed splitting

I am racking my head trying to understand why 'seed splitting' is considered bad practice. I understand that it introduces more complexity but I fail to understand how it reduces security. Most arguments I have seen are that if someone gains access to any part of your seed they could brute force the rest of the key. However, if we are to assume that someone has gained access to this part of your seed, would they not have had the full 24 words anyway if you had not split it? All in all, if I was happy with the extra 'complexity', would this not increase the security of my seed? Like decentralising my seed? Thanks in advance. I hope this is the right community to go to in order to find the right answer.
