I would argue that everything in the movie world is scanned now anyways and scanning a transparency editing the content and then producing transparencies for projection causes less issue in quality than 3 copies on film, but I could be wrong about the scanning bit.

I assumed the reason they use the low contrast negs had more to do with the digital editing process and technicolor's handling profile and how they prefer to begin with muted colors and low contrast and add that stuff later on.
