While the fluid is nominally non-compressible, the larger the line size particularly with a rubber hose or even teflon lined, the more you can get expansion that feels like compression.  Smaller lines just feel firmer with brakes, guys like Mario Andretti can feel it, I can't...  For a clutch it just doesn't matter, the pressures are too low to expand almost any hose but you need the volume for a clutch.
