spot vs line analyser for telecine

Here is something I've been wondering about during the 
CCD line vs Flying-spot discussions on the TIG.

Would it be true to say that --in theory--,
the 'dot' illumination of flying spot analysers --which only 
puts light onto one pixel of the film at a time-- can produce 
cleaner images than the 'line' illumination used for CCD 
imagers in which all the clear/transparent areas of the full
scanned line can be detrimental (through the unavoidable parasitic 
reflexions in the optical path) to their opaque neighbours purity?

... or am I out to lunch?
