You can extract the embedded JPEGs from a batch of raw files (the same JPEGs you would have got if you shot raw+JPEG),

Not true on my XSi and probably not true on most dSLR's.

RAW+JPG give me a 12 MP JPG file.  However the JPG image embedded in the RAW file is about 3 MP.

Right! I was thinking of the 60D.

So... you can extract a low-res JPEG from the raw file, which is plenty good enough for evaluation and sharing.
