Yes, I have tracked M-S recordings with two individual comps set differently, for recording. In one room I needed to comp the M significantly more than the S (I think it was 3.5:1, which for me is a lot for tracking orchestra, while the side was tracking at 1.5 or 2:1).
I have also tried M-S for drum OHs with two different comps, both with pretty large compression ratios. I seem to recall this was not an excellent room sound, but I don't think it was the compression that sucked the width away, it was the wrong pattern for the room--Blumlein with the same comps sounded wider.
