I'm also hearing a lot of records lately where they de-ess the vocal but don't de-ess the vocal send. The other variation is where they ride the vocal, but send the vocal pre fader, so the reverb balance keeps wandering. And digital reverbs really bring out the worst in sibilant vocals... ugh.
Well, if that isn't an arguement for a good engineer and an analog console I don't know what is. I almost always de-ess on the insert and aux sends are always pre-fader unless I'm not using any of the direct sound.
