The only reason to favor jpg against raw is laziness. I never shoot jpg.

Exactly.  I'm amazed that people buy high-end DSLRs with top glass, and shoot 8-bit JPEG.  Archiving in JPEG form is just plain silly, so I cannot see any reason to shoot them unless you just don't care or are taking meaningless snapshots.

With editors like Lightroom making conversion as simple as "Exporting to JPEG", there is almost no reason to shoot JPEG.  If you don't think you'll have time to work in LR on any given shoot, at least shoot RAW + JPEG so you at least have one 14-bit digital negative of your image to hang onto.
