The itemlevel is not only for better stats. You can also equip much better relics and titles on a higher level LI.

But alone the relics are worth the switch imho. (There are currently no new unique relics or titles exept the crafted so the biggest difference regarding this would be 65->85, but they will come sooner or later)
For the legacy-upgrades you are right: a TA with empowerment-scrolls to max them will be the same as a SA/FA with more points if the weapon/book has the Same legacies.
