What will boiling hops for 15 minutes give me (besides15 minutes of bittering) that won't happen at flameout?

Will much aroma/flavor be driven off during the 15 minute boil?

In other words, why 15 instead of 0 - or the inverse, why 0 instead of 15?

Seems to me lately people consider anything less than 20min to be flavor/aroma. Both are flavor and aroma is stronger when it's steeped less time.
