"I'm wondering if it will "widen" the knee between clean and distortion --if I'm making sense :)"
"According to Boscorelli, that is exactly what it will do."
Yes it will. I've played with Jack's minitubes circuit and you can get more light blues tones with the higher voltage.  
"Also, increasing the voltage will most likely REDUCE the maximum distortion available, as the JFETs will have more room to be linear."
Yup. With less stages thats a bigger issue. You won't get as much grind. With 3 stages, even running at 36V, you get so much saturation you probably won't hear an audible difference.
