I think the compressor wah thing is definitely the biggest personal preference issue in this. I like the unruly peaks, but I can definitely understand others wanting to keep then under control.
Compressor > wah = peaks stay sharp, sometimes too sharp
Wah > compressor = peaks controlled, but sometimes dull
