You cannot really increase the quality of bit perfect audio.

Declipping can help a lot with poorly mastered tracks.

Because Volume Leveling is an unmovable plugin in Media Center, it's not really possible to leave a declipping plugin enabled right now though, since clipping happens in the upper 3dB or so.
 
 
At one point Matt seemed interested in this, but I don't know that anything ever came of it.

You have reached the end of the internet.  Nothing more to be achieved.   ;D

Interesting suggestion. Went for a wander and then I wondered, "What would Audacity do?"

There's a bit of mathematics to sort this stuff out:

Then there's getting the right logic to make sure you don't make the problem worse.and actually target the clips...  hmmm ... :-\

Yes, this is why I would prefer to use a VST plugin for it, rather than processing my tracks offline.
Declipping is probably never going to be perfect, so it's nice to have the option of changing the software doing the processing at a later date.
