Hooking up component, composite, and HDMI through receiver

Here's the set-up: digital cable running through HDMI, Wii through composite, and DVD through component. All three plugged into their respective inputs on the back of my receiver. I know that the HDMI needs its own cable running from the receiver to the TV, so that's done. Does that mean that I would also need separate component and composite cables running from the receiver to the TV? If so, I guess I don't understand the benefit of running video cables through the receiver, unless you need to use it as a "switch" due to lack of inputs on your TV. If not, then you're basically doubling the number of cables behind the AV stack, running once to the receiver and again to the TV, instead of just going straight to the TV.
