Be careful about the density though, since XL2 is still only 1/3 CCD..if you're looking to take the edge off but not be too noticeable, try an 1/8 or 1/4... 1/2 may too much, but that's all subjective.
An episode of a TV show I shot for IFC played out as film noir, and I wanted to go for that B&W reversal look from back in the day before they developed anti-halation backing on the film (which controls the blooming of overexposed highlights), so I combined a 1/2 GG with a 1/4 classic soft... you definitely notice the diff, but mostly in the way the highlights bloomed. Good luck.
