Protecting digital files has severe limits. You can convert CAD models and drawings to PDF, tiff or other types of files but that only keeps others from making changes to the original file. But once you give out a drawing with dimensions, the cat is out of the bag and that makes it much easier to reverse engineer something or share with anyone.

Bigger is always better but if the parts are simple, it isn't necessary.
11 x 17 allows for bigger views, allows for multiple views or allows for better detail of complex parts.

And it's not necessarily either or.
11 x 17 can also be folded twice so it fits into a 8 1/2 x 11 folder and the title block is still visible as you thumb through the pages. Again, 11 x 17 when needed.
