It may be. As with any material, the higher the subject contrast range the 
more decisions you have to make about where on the sensitometric curve to 
locate the image, or which tones you are prepared to sacrifice. However 
colour neg and chromagenic B&W have truly extraordinary range. Usually you 
can't use all of it and hope to print it in the darkroom, except as a 
horribly flat print (or an exercise in dodging and burning). But you can 
scan much more of it, and adjust things to work well.
