I don't like this statement as a rule.
Sometimes (and by sometimes I mean often) close critical analysis brings out stuff that you'd never otherwise think of. Isomorphism as (not) explained in the movie is kind of interesting, but if you read further into the philosophical, biological, and computer science roots of the concept you can pull a lot more meaning from the film.
Design choices in films are not made arbitrarily. Often there's a meaning that can be read out of it if you choose to look beneath the surface.
That said, control gravity, draw a parallel between Flynn and Clu (thanks to ShadowDragon1 for observing that Flynn's were actually Bits and not the meditation balls), show the philosophical roots of the flick, and look interesting are pretty much the only things worth
reading out of them. Whether they're tied to Rinzler or not is kind of immaterial, IMO.
