Sound about right?

So, utilizing the dryden S&P500 within the 401k is primary since it has a expense ratio more like vanguard.
This site is awesome. Excellent advice from many of you.
It was recently pointed out to me, that I happened to have small cap value as part of my asset allocation, and that I should consider converting it to the small cap index.
But, I also keep reading a lot about many investors choosing a bit of a "value" tilt instead.
I'm just wondering how much of a difference does it really make. Not as much history to evaluate the small cap value. I do see it has a slight higher expense ratio, has a higher SEC yield, but can't really compare it for the long-term.
Assuming everything else in AA is comparable, any particular reason why a vanguard small cap "value" can't represent 10-15% of allocation versus the index?
