This article gives examples of information gained by using ordinal over binary response variables. This is done by showing that for the same sample size and power, smaller effects can be detected

It is easy to compute the sample size N_{1} needed to reliably estimate how one predictor relates to an outcome. It is next to impossible for a machine learning algorithm entertaining hundreds of features to yield reliable answers when the sample size < N_{1}.
