So, at the risk of sounding ignorant, why would USB 3.0 be a better interface for this than, say, eSATA? I assume that this kind of hardware is still going to require external power, right? So what's the advantage?

Anything with USB 3 is going to have eSATA these days, and eSATA is quite a bit faster. It's just the external interface, so I can't imagine there'd be much problem there, right?
