I think you are missing the point of what Raw is there for, it's not just to create another jpg the same but it's a digital negative retaining all the data so you can adjust or manipulate it as you desire.

For sure and I understand that. The easiest way I can explain it is to use the old film days as an analogy. The RAW image is like the negative and the JPEG is like the final print that was returned from wherever when the the film was developed. An image shot in JPEG is the cameras processor's version of what information is needed in the image. The camera discards what information if feels is not needed and it is gone from the JPEG. The JPEG is now the equivelant of a print returned from developing That usually leaves little room for major changes in PP. A RAW image leaves all of the information intact and a person can PP with all of the information that is available and make his own JPEG.

I may have left out a few minor details or could have used better terminolgy but I beleive that pretty well explains what is going on in general terms.
