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.

With DPP you should be able to generate the same JPEG that you would have generated in camera from the raw file, assuming you match the settings in your camera.  You also have the opportunity to develop something you like better than what you would have with the camera.

That's true but it's not what I meant. 

RAW+JPEG saves you from having to do that RAW conversion, but that's about it.

That's true too.
