Digital stuff is great if you want to alter the audio in a technical way. HQ analog is great if you want to alter it in a asthethical, enhancing way.
Technical compression always leads to the lost of space, depth, 3D whateveryouwanttocallit, while asthetical compression might lead to an enhancement (often without any real compression work going on).
A lot of mixes do not really needs no broadband compression in a technical sense but could be improved in aesthetical way.

Those kind of discussion are really very theoretical, the more pratical kind of guys knows what to use to achieve certain results. In the end its about ears not about theoretical arguments. Its about art, not science. Always.
