There are many situations where peoples argue how deep comp is canonical now and how it will change the face of the CGI... I'm often arguing it's not a "tiny" feature and, while it can be useful "sometime", it creates more troubles than it solve in practice, specially if its use is generalized (and on a animated feature you often need to "over-generalize" uses).
