Motion smoothers are designed to make film motion look smoother, and some say it gives film material a "soap opera" effect, making motion look almost too smooth and not film-like.
I don't know who thought eliminating jutter was ever a good idea. "Hey, I got an idea! Let's have the option to make this quality motion picture look like it was filmed with an 80s camcorder! It'll be the next big thing!"

Even though TNG, DS9, VOY, and ENT were all basically filmed, they were post-edited in the video realm, which is why it's taking so long to upgrade them to HDTV.
That's actually not the case with ENT.
