One more advantage of FWD is under braking the CoG of the car shifts forwards, with all the weight over the front wheels there is also extra grip for braking meaning you stop quicker. (however you have to be a bit careful as the back can easily swing round.)
This advantage you mention is for foward mounted engines, not for FWD
There are cars with RWD that has the same advantage!
