Re: [ARSCLIST] 0.1 dB
While not disagreeing with your premise, I have seen 1970s mastering
notes shoved into the tape box that had 0.1 dB step attenuator
settings on mastering equalizers. I suspect in those days they were
made with Daven step-attenuator (or similar) controls.

I think we are saying the same thing. Again, I believe we are making
these minute changes because we can; and esp. because these days we
can recall many parameters. Musicians, producers and engineers --we
are all caught up in this (hey, it's even sort of fun!).
Consider tempo, for example, versus EQ. The former is unrepeatable
(by human musicians anyway) to minute resolutions, while the latter
is. I'd submit the former is far more important, but we change the
latter, because we can.
