that is a preference. Just because you want something doesnt mean:
A) everyone else does (we are still a minority)
B) You're right and everyone else is wrong.
I'm just gonna keep beatin' this dead horse until someone buries it. Artisitcally speaking, it should not matter what I THINK, what YOU THINK, or what ANYONE thinks of the original film or the transfer. Artistically speaking, the original should speak for itself, and the BRD (as a reproduction) should seek to come as close as possible to the original.
The original should always be the reference, not your opinion or mine. The artistic and practical decisions that go into a movie's creation should be left within the sole purview of those who made the film, not those authoring the BRD, whenever this is possible (and it usually is), and certainly NOT those VIEWING the work of art.
The ONLY reason we have this sort of grotesque overuse of DNR and EE is because there are COMMERCIAL interests in play, not merely artistic ones.
So if you guys want to keep having the commercial argument, fine. Just recognize it for what it is.
