What's the advantage of using a solenoid instead of simply doing a z-hop?
Is it just speed?

Good question. The main advantage is that you can treat it like a laser engraver. You can use ordinary laser cutting software like Inkscape with J-tech photonics or LightBurn and use the M106/M107 commands to make a drawing.

Now make a vinyl cutter head holder for this, and you have the ultimate quick change tool head for any maker.

That would be an awesome subject for a future video, thanks! At this moment there is a drag knife holder in existence made by LegitLee https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3615216 This is exactly why I encourage others to design holders so we will eventually have a platform which supports lots of tools!
