Depends on how you look at "much simpler".

proxy_store doesn't have a cache manager so space limitation/cleaning is up to you.
Also nginx doesn't save any headers (contrary to proxy_cache) with the stored file so next requests won't return expire / content-type etc what came originally from backend but based on the (local) proxy configuration.

The advantage is that there are no additional checks (like if the object is expired) or any additional requests to upstream. Also files are named and have the exact path as on backend (with proxy_cache nginx adds additional data in the beginning of each cached file).

Other than that there is nothing wrong or bad with proxy_store. I use it for a lazy repository mirror where I know the package/iso files won't change and the cached directory/file structure is more human readable / easy to inspect.
