If exposure is accurate, there is no real need and minimizing exposure has its pluses. Faster shutter speed, smaller aperture, minimizing grain; all good things are they not?
there is no absolute accurate exposure. The best exposure is the one that gives you what you want in the negative. I would trade having all the details I can get in a negative for slower shutter speed and larger apertures all day. I think most people would. Not sure what grain size has to do with anything.
