Is there still a place for soft focus filters. LIke Softnets?

I still own a six piece set of good circular mesh between glass quality soft mesh filters both black and white of different diffusions.  They fit 58mm with ring..

Have not used them in a while. And thinking I am maybe missing out on a pre visualization thing that I used to emply regularly. I wonder if I have gone over to the Sharp is Better thinking.

Is this a shift that is generally observed. Get it sharp as possible, less diffusion before processing.

Or is it just too much work. Perish the thoughts ( Like tripods they have to be packed and stowed)

Your thoughts?
