Respectfully Jack, I don't agree.
We've been working with a number of broadcast and theatrical release 
jobs that have noise or grain problems of one sort or another, and in 
all cases have substantially reduced or eliminated the problem without 
introducing softness or loss of detail. (In fact we frequently bring out 
detail that was lost before in the noise or grain)
