A coped joint, when used for inside corners, is indeed a superior joint. it has the ability, when skillfully cut and matched, to-- well, cope with any deviation from a pure 90 degree joint, something a miter cannot do without precise cutting of the true angle. Further, if there's any movement in the joint such as from house settlement, the cope joint adapts well to this whereas the miter will immediately show the problem.
