ETTR in a low contrast scene
1

I'm reading an article on ETTR which says:

Low contrast scenes will not really benefit from ETTR if there are no dark shadow areas. A low contrast scene exposed to the right has the potential for visible sensor saturation artifacts (banding). Instead, a nice, mid-range histogram is what you want for these types of scenes.

Do you agree with this? It doesn't make sense to me if the areas at the right end of the histogram are the ones that gather the most data.
