Excellent point.  And scanners who are using Kurzweil 8 or higher may want 
to consider scanning with Grayscale and speckle removal active at 400DPI. 
It often does better than any automatic settings optimization.  The bottom

a matter to spending a little time to get things set up right ahead of a 
scanning job and a little time to clean up what did not come out right.
