Of course, they're more 'developed' or closer to real world compression than the N**e comp. But I wasn't talking about that, I was talking about the colour. The other comps are based on different models and so on. I just love the sound of that particular compressor. I'll use it more in a sort of Mojo way if you like. Same as I do with some of Henry's stuff.

I usually work @ 44.1k with 96k effects (to save CPU power) and when rendering, I reload the project to 96 and switch on the timed kernels on the master.

I have to admit that the differences are barely noticeable, but sometimes 96k manages to sound more "real", especially on the long run.
I was thinking of doing something like that if I need to. Working at 44 and going to 96 to render (I've just purchased a ton of new libraries so I'm still in the stage of defining my workflow and how much I can actually do in a 'live'/real time sense).

+10000 !
Furthermore, I found with blind tests that I very often prefer 44.1k for blues, pop, rock and all other "electric" styles. For classic music, I prefer 96k for the precision of the reverb tails.
I no longer waist my time trying to work with the biggest number !

Just to go a little further (it's not the topic, I know), the sample frequency problem is NOT an audio bandwidth question but a DAC filter behavior.

keep on making music, not looking at numbers !

Doesn't work with all the DAWs 'tho, with Ableton it's really easy, just reload the project @ 96k. I'm also using a some synths that benefit from the 96k SR.

If it's a possiblity, I'd say go for it, even just for archiving. I love having the uncompressed, untouched mixdowns as high quality files and then back them up on a USB stick/HDD.
