Hi Kris:

I agree with your Spirit observations as they apply to beautifully exposed film.
However, I think that grain can be quite apparent in film that has been pushed in the lab or under and over-exposed in the camera.   
My comments in an earlier posting were meant to convey that the amount
of noise/grain reduction to be used depended upon the individual piece of
film.  That could be little to no reduction on one piece of film, and alot more  noise/grain reduction on another with less than ideal properties.
