The final few words in your query pretty much says it all. Just because they're cheap doesn't mean they're appropriate. Besides they'd be better on the inside of the wall than the outside - better management of thermal mass.

A unit development close by used PowerWall. All on concrete slabs. I reckon their tolerance for movement would be low, and so a slab, while not always 'perfect' would be better than on stumps - if I dared to use it on stumps I would leave a flexible movement gap between every panel rather than rendering over joins (which would be prone to cracking). Some residential architecture makes a feature of the gaps so it could look good. But of course Hebel's warranty would be void unless installed as they specify...

here's a Hebel document describing cladding over piers/stumps. Includes gap/control joint.
