If the route is so obscure and brushy that I'm worried about finding the way back, it seems appropriate to use a few flags. These kind of places aren't exactly scenic to begin with, and are rarely travelled, so the flags aren't offending many people. Placing ribbons in the alpine, or along established trails/routes does bother me when I see it. There are occasional times I'll use flagging, and stand by the decision to do so.
