Thank you for the link to that article. I read it quickly, have to go back and reread some parts. But one thing is clear, facts are stubborn things (the human ear works the way it works). The distortion aspects are also key. Looks like the standard 16/44.1 got things mostly right.

I don't know why, but upsampling my mp3s does make them sound a little better to me (along with a little DSP doctoring, which helps even more). Going forward, I had already decided to use a lossless format (wavpack) for my personal ripping.
