I'm already scanning it, so I've introduced non-traditional process in the mix, what the hell's the difference after that.

I've got to admit that I, too, find the idea that copying the slide to B&W film just to scan it is OK, but scanning the slide directly isn't, strange. To be consistent, I would think all scans would be banned.
