Default To DNR or not to DNR

One hot topic seems to be that of DNR applied to film restorations. I see many reacting negatively to DNR use. But I'd like to know if there is ever a time when DNR can be a useful tool. Are there any movies restored on bluray/DVD where DNR did actually improve things?

Unless one is involved in the entire process (from film to disc) how would one know if DNR was used and how much. When DNR is over used it is quite apparent. If really interested I would ask Robert Harris this question.

Any titles known for smart use of DNR?

There is nothing wrong with it if used in the right way. These days I don't see much reason to. Shoot on film if you want the grain. Shoot digitally if you don't. 20 years ago it wasn't quite that simple.

One movie I watched today - Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan has DNR applied. But it isn't overdone like some others such as Terminator 2 (possibly the worst offender I've seen).

Any examples of applied DNR that did actually improve things?
