these reports are an anachronism anyway, same as slating. hopefully they'll morph into something more useful over the next decade, or disappear.
in music vids and commercials there are no camera reports anymore (for digital work).
nearly everything is noted by script supervisor, and vetted by DIT/DMT, before going out to the lab
Many editors like having the slate because it gives the details on their screen. Short form productions can be rather different in their demands to long form, also it applies a discipline on the set, actors know that something is about to happen and crew members on a larger set can see a take is about to happen.
