Did you have a look at the thread last month on the Colorsync list
where several experts from around the world (of scanning:) pointed out
the benefits?  To paraphrase and condense (by memory), the advantage
has to do with getting more accurate curves (RGB) than possible with
post scan corrections, resulting in final results with more accurate
"internal" color, quite noticable in practice (SOTA level), according
to those posting.  No doubt there are those experts (Margulis) who
would still disagree, but with the advent of very high quality color
digital printing (Lightjet and ink jet), Margulis's apparent point of
reference (off set) may no longer be best in the SOTA sense.
