Canon: ETTL for radio trigger worth it?

Some of the shots with a single speedlight I'll use the ETTL feature and some shots with more strobes I'll use ETTL too. OTOH I have no issue going manual to set output. (just not as quick for certain shots)  I want to add an additional speedlight (not from Canon) outside of the system so manual is going to be the only way to trigger it. Basic 2.4GHz triggers vary though most are sub $100 for the transmitter and two receivers. ETTL capable that jumps almost double. I'll want 3 receivers for this setup.

Your thoughts whether a trigger system with ETTL capabilities is practical/worthwhile expense or not?
