That's an excellent summary of the capabilities of the two Canon macro flashes. I do a lot of macro work and decided the extra flexibility of the MT-24EX was worth the extra cost, and most of my macro work uses it.

However, both the MR-14EX and MT-24EX are expensive, and you can get very good results with a standard, well diffused flash mounted on a bracket off-camera.

You can even get reasonable results from the on-board pop-up flash with the shorter macro lenses.

Here's a shot of my current MT-24EX rig :

And here's a few shot with just the pop-up flash and a Tamron 60mm Macro lens :
