What I would do:
1. Scan well-exposed, non-contrasty shots with ICE and surgically remove any feathery edges and or flairs.
2. Scan the rest without ICE and do the dusting with my spot healer.
3. Strongly consider a scanhancer for stubborn slides. It should reduce apparent grain and other artifacts, but at the expense of time- expect scan times to double or triple
