As with everything else, there's no blanket answer to that. It depends on what works best for each story, or on how good a job you do with whatever option you choose. Sometimes rationalizing away an inconsistency can produce a very imaginative, worthwhile, and meaningful story; sometimes it just feels like an exercise in continuity porn and an unnecessary reminder of something better forgotten.
