The in-camera settings are arbitrary enough. You cannot tell what the exact effect will be, compared to a little more or a little less. With post processing that is exactly how settings are determined.

That's what I'm saying, more or less; that it's the processing, not the data that makes raw files work the way they do.

Shooting JPEG is not practical? That's news to a lot of photographers.

You know that's not what I meant.  I shoot JPEG quite often myself.
