The good news is that in Aperture (or Lightroom) the format of a file is completely irrelevant. You simply don't have to do any of the work of trying to track RAW vs. JPEG/TIFF or whatever. The format of a file only matters if and when you make a copy for someone else. And then it can be whatever you want.

Similarly, since Aperture automatically keeps your images arranged by date, you are free to use any catalog structure you want, and with Smart Albums you can use several at the same time.

Learning to let go can be the hardest thing about using Aperture. Welcome to the club.
