The gains are in terms of usability - TS lenses are notoriously hostile toward the whole reflex viewfinder concept. Also, the prism overhang on many DSLRs can limit the lens' movements.

BTW, I said "SLR designs" because there's nothing restricting the use of modern TS designs with older bodies (so they're not strictly for digital cameras), but if I wanted a lens with incorporated movement I'd definitely prefer a modern Canon of Nikon one.

Has it even been documented how large the image quality difference is by using a proper tilt shift lens vs fixing the "untilting" in post when shot with a modern high quality regular wide angle?

Not that I know of... but the difference should be quite noticeable after only a mild tilt. All of us Sony E-mount users know that stretched corners look like, thanks to built-in distortion correction. Just think of the same process applied to a sizable portion of the image.
