I don't mind imperfections as a viewer/owner. As a photographer I could understand them being maddening in some situations, like where the imperfection gets in the way. I'm no perfectionist and happy little blemishes are just as happy as happy little trees.
The celeb tintypes suck because the subjects look uninterested/bored in their poses. Same pose and lighting like school pictures, but less connection between the photographer and subject. Probably the photographer was overwhelmed by the work rather than considering the portrait.
