The Flickr reader's arguement was that SOOC has to be RAW converted to JPEG without adjustments.

Then he doesn't know what he is talking about.  Your camera shoots RAW (only) and the result can be converted to a jpeg either in the camera or on a PC.  Either way there are 'adjustments' - the same adjustments, possibly, but adjustments nonetheless.  You specify in-camera settings for things like WB, saturation, contrast, and sharpness - even you have left them at the factory default and never touched them, that information is used by the camera's processor to make the OOC jpeg.  The only 'adjustment-free' information is what is in the RAW file before demosaicing, and is not a viewable image at that stage.

Best wishes
