I'd like to add a Paradigm center channel, but I'm not a big fan of having it sit on top of the TV. The on-wall version is appealing for that reason. I know on paper they are identical, but has anyone had a chance to compare them side by side?

They are not identical, take a look at the frequency response. The OW loses quite a bit of extension due to the nearly half size enclosure. 77Hz for the OW vs 57Hz for the regular one is a considerable difference. Also, unless you have a thin, wall mounted TV, having the center on the wall well behind the TV will be far less than optimal placement.
