I think traditional sheetmusic has two major advantages related to normal Harmonica TAB's:
#1: It shows the rythm and beat of every note. It shows if the note should be long or short, and shows where there is a break. Also a lot of other information is shown and read very easily in sheetmusic.
#2: It also shows the change in pitch in a very grafically fashion, which makes it easier to use as an aid to remenber while you play. TAB's you read and learn before you play, - because its difficult to get an overview without actually reading.
Its correct that sheetmusic will show diffirent scores for every key, but it dont have to be such a big problem. If you can see where the most important notes are you will quite easily figure the rest out because it is so grafically logical.
I am not a sheetmusic genius myself. I would prefer a TAB for learning, and sheetmusic as an aid while I play. A combination of both (like in most guitar-books) would be the ideal solution IMHO.
