My impression is that the more maths an audio professional knows, the more
sure the audio professional is that higher sampling rates is a
bad thing. (unless you are recording sounds that is later going to be 
downsampled a lot of course)

Perhaps its impossible for us non-skilled-mathematicians to
understand properly why 96 kHz is a bad thing...
