Well, the GOUT has in general a lot of noise, grain and shake over the picture, since it hasn't been cleaned up like the new editions. And so the mattpainting also shakes a lot... more ore less like the rest of the film.. but maybe even a bit more, because of the photographic progress involved in an vfx shot..

But those were the shakes, that the cleaned up GOUT tried to get rid of, because its very annoying in the GOUT DVDs.. but if you are too good in cleaning up grain and shake you end up with a very flat and "fake" looking picture..

So if you just take a still picture with no movement and edit it into the film, it might be the right shot from back then, but it does look completely wrong, more like a new computereffect.. the original matte might have looked fake in the first place, but at least it had "film"-life..
So ideally the still matte has to be matched to the appearance of the surrounding picture, so it won't feel wrong and out of place if you watch it...

And if GOUT pictures are used, I believe it's still more preferable to use a shot with movement (even if nothing "happens" in the picture), then just using a still from this shot.. or a new combination.. there has been put a lot of effort in recreating some shots, like the flight into mos eisley, but the new compositions make it a new shot, that might look like the old one, but it's something else.. maybe I'm overly critical with that, but that's just my 5 cent. ;)
