Been reading about the salted rim of a margarita and getting very mixed signals. Some say purists insist on salt because it enhances the flavor of the drink; some say purists insist on the opposite because it merely masks a poorly/cheaply made drink.

I'd thought it was the latter, but now I'm not sure. Expert opinions?
