The Cons Of WDR?

It doesn't seem to get mentioned much, but I've noticed one seeming con of WDR? It distorts the features of the face and other things, making them look matted. Maybe a review on how WDR can distort an image and why it may actually be a detriment in some situations?

From a manufacturer perspective, is there a way a camera can detect lighting levels so it knows when it needs to use WDR and when it does not?
