Bad lens = better DR !??

Just wondering, but could it be that a lens with low contrast and a bit of flare (right word?) actually is an advantage when shooting high contrast scenes/subjects, because it automatically 'lifts' the shadows in the exposure, and therefore in practice gives us lower noise and better DR?
