Grey scales

The DP vs Colorist thread has brought up a good question for the list.
        "Is a grey scale useful in the telecine transfer?"

        I have thought that a grey scale exposed to key at the head of
every scene (before adding any color efx filters) would be a help to the

        Which scale?
        Is the plain Kodak 18% grey card, the Smethurst High-Light (7 step
scale with 18% card combo) or the Macbeth color chart the best? Or should
we using a video color chip chart?
        The new charts advertised seem to promise a lot. I would like to
hear if they actually work.
