This is the view I have for normal q's. I still don't ever run smite in ranked but can see its possible uses.
I run smite/exhaust, so I don't lose that. I just lose the escape skill (I don't think she needs one with her skillset). It's not only good for the early clear, but for snipe jungling the enemy's side.
Edit: I used to not take it at all thinking it was a waste, now I'm about 70/30 in favor.
