In high dynamic range scenes it can prevent or reduce clipped high tones and preserve shadows. So for many it is quite useful. Are you shooting burst mode where speed of the buffer clearing is important? How fast the buffer clears is not really a concern for the computer.
You can get some of the function of the ADL in post but not the clip reduction, when it is clipped, there is data loss that can't be recovered. ADL impacts exposure so it does change the exposure even in RAW mode but the shadow recovery is possible in post processing.
Are you having a problem with high DR range scenes now? Some subjects like studio portraiture, I turn it off but in outdoors wide DR scenes i leave it on.
