The only point to upscaling is so that the standard definition image can fill the screen. It doesn't make anything better, it doesn't turn it into HD, just lets it fill the screen.
That is part of it, but you're kind of suggesting that all upscalers are the same, and none of them offer better upscaling performance from one to another, which would be misleading at best.
Performance, yes. Quality, no. No matter what algorithm, making 4 pixels out of 1 pixel will always just be interpolated. And interpolation is never the same quality as full sampling.
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
