I guess it depends on the situation, but something like Light Grid is nice, or Tough Opal. Something that doesn't cut too much transmission.
It really comes down to how you like your kinos to feel. Like you say it's personal taste.
For my taste without diffusion they feel very much like a fluorescent source even though they're naturally soft, and thus I seldom use them without diffusion unless I'm in a fluorescent environment.
Their quality with light grid is very pleasing to me, but naturally you lose the punch and the directionality of the egg crate.
It's the constant trade-off between softness and throw/control that we have to face with all of our lighting equipment, be it kino, tungsten, HMI or LED - you have to choose what's right in a particular situation, there's no absolute answer.
