Not just higher ISO

Actually you can do it much cleaner and better with Software digitally now than with optical filters. Read the article I linked then try it with today's products. It really is better to do it digitally..... except perhaps in very specific cases when long exposure at base ISO is possible.

I already said that color filters can be counter-productive if they force a higher ISO.

Compared to using modern digital software (less than one year old software solutions), color filters are always the less optimal choice regards final IQ. The only exception might be certain specific situations of very long exposure at base ISO. Lab testing of optics/lighting come to mind.
