I don't see the point if you're shooting RAW.  All of the sensor data is loaded into the file.  You can do essentially everything those functions do using the curves and shadow-highlight adjusters in your RAW processing software.

I even turn off Peripheral Correction.  I find these features that "correct" issues actually flatten the image a bit - it kinda removes the character of the lens you're using anyway.

I shoot almost exclusively RAW and refine in LR - do I need to bother with setting either of the above or do they effect post-processing in camera only? 60D by the way...
