44.1 kHz was a compromise engineered to provide 70 minutes of playing
time on a CD. And that's the only reason why it exists. The rest of the
world uses 48 or 96 kHz. 

Re. sample libraries: these will in many cases be resampled anyway.
And it's a lot easier to do this right when starting from 48 kHz.
