Sometimes, it's not about the transients or average level, it's about the sound of a voice going through the compressor that makes tracking with compression a viable option. There are a lot of notorious engineers that spout about the pristine experience of using 24 bit and not needing compression. However, those same people reach for an LA2A, 1176, C1B (pick your weapon) for their primary vocal, time and again.
