Even if they were there to be seen in the first place (which they're not), I don't need to be able to see every tiny detail on Cinderella's glass slipper in immaculate high definition. The best they can do for a traditionally animated film is, what, sharpen the lines? BATB on DVD is fine. I've seen some screencaps of the blu-ray, and I don't even think I like how hard the lines are. Sort of distracting to me.
Maybe not older animated movies, but contemporary stuff (The Simpsons Movie, Pixar movies, Venture Bros., etc.) looks fantastic because the colors are so deep and rich.
