You forgot the benefit of driving your opponent insane for the first few worms just by driving him so crazy.
To be serious though, "several queens" means that you would probably get more creep per second with just dropping a ton of tumors vs doing the nydus thing.
Post on that account after stating the name with this one... with a replay... or don't be taken seriously.
Also, there are many instances in game where zerg huddles in his base cause he wants to drone/tech and only make units or morph banes when terran heads across map/etc.... if you have invested in nydusing the map, you can't do this. You must have a standing army so they don't just kill every nydus with their units. There is no way you are going to "hold" your nyduses if you are using them to retreat to another "front line". . . you are retreating, you can't hold, so you can't hold your new "front line" nydus... they all fall.
Why make 1 tumor when you can make 10! for the price of 0?

this might work if nydus worms didnt cost that 100 gas. but it does so its just to risky. now if you hotkeyed all your worms they would cause ur units to unload in lines but again that wouldnt really help taht much for the investment you had. i have been trying to find more ways to use the nydus for a while now and leapfrogging for creep has never seemed logical.
best use for nydus i have seen has been as defense midgame for getting valuable drones out of harms way and to a new expo. then late game for trashing tech in the main after they have mined it out and so the army is usually out of position to protect current expos. even then i only use lings because the bulk of my army has to stay in a position to defend if they push
