For me an excellent example of this is 2001: A Space Odyssey. The f/x in that film are astounding, the pinnacle of what could be done then, and all without cgi.
It's even more amazing when you realize this was being done at the same time TOS was being produced -- and even a decade later theatrical SF films were being released with crappier FX.

Something like TOS-R or Lucas' tinkering is not preserving the past, but erasing and rewriting it.
You do know that TOS was remastered with all the original FX intact, right? I'm not quite seeing how simply retransferring the original film master is rewriting anything.
