That's true for a lot of things in audio...

Many of the big name mixers can be seen lighting up clip indicators all over their projects. Because it doesn't matter in a floating point audio engine.
Yep. Some of the biggest names in rock have even chosen their DA for how it sounds when it clips...

The emulation plugin argument is kinda void too. Most of these plugins break up way before the hardware would, because consumers wouldn't think it was doing anything if it was as clean as the hardware, and they are just an effect anyway. Twiddle knobs until it sounds good, don't play "vintage studio simulator"... unless that's what gets you off of course, which is all fine.
I've given up on emulations. Especially mic simulations. Didn't play around with many others tho.
