I am of a different opinion. If you are not sweating they will add another layer between you, hot air, and cold air, colder layers, help against any wind sneaking through, and add another 1 or 2 C for sure.

Maybe if I italic a couple of words it'll hopefully make my point a bit clearer.

"Waterproof liners inside coats & pants don't make a lot of sense."

A waterproof layer (whose primary purpose is to keep the rider dry) makes more sense on the outside than on the inside.

The other advantages you mention - which I agree with, particularly in terms of wind bartier - are secondary.

But all of those advantages or secondary extras are provided equally well if the waterproof layer is on the outside, with the advantage that the waterproof layer is on the outside.

Not trying to convert or convince - just my opinion.

You could have a layer on the outside and anotger on the inside, provided by different garments, according to conditions.
