Ciao,
The European standard prohibits tinning in compression connections and requires ferrules. Hence Touratech uses them, and JZH being in the EU may have seen them more frequently than they appear in North America. It seems a much better way of doing things, I will be buying a bunch and using them on all my ST farkle connections. Will report back.

You may want to restate that but as it is it is simply not true.
Tinning the ends using a crimp terminal is not recommended by any of the more than a few writings I read looking into the subject.
Tinning the end of the wiring can cause the wire to become brittle at the tin location and soften the wire at the point the tin ends.
Basically if you are doing a solder connection it should be tinned and if you are doing a crimp it should not be tinned.
Crimp connections are fine if the proper tools are used.
Solder connections are fine if you know how to solder and use the right tools.
The proper place for either must be observed.
