And yet we chose to pay for a 5-star Culinary Chef (DiGiC Processor) to cook our meal (Convert RAW to JPEG in-camera).  Are you a Professional Chef  (Professional Digital Image Editor) ?  If not, you'll burn that RAW file when your get around to processing it.  Or you might undercook it in the eyes of your peers.
If you are slightly color blind, if you have an incorrectly calibrated monitor, if your monitor is calibrated for print but not internet, if your camera settings are inappropriate or if your skills as a photographer are lacking, then all your abilities as an image editor are essentially affected. And ultimately, your images may suffer in the eyes of others.

There's still room to edit a JPEG image further, to enhance the colors, to sharpen the image further and to lighten hidden details concealed in the shadows... or to lower the highlights to reveal hidden details.  How is it that people think they can take great pictures without accurate exposures and reasonable subject framing?  Get it right in-camera rather than try to "fix" your pictures later in editing programs and you might be happier with the results.

Since Modern cameras can retain considerable details inside the shadows and highlights of an image, RAW becomes more redundant for the non-industry semi-pro photographer.  Accurate color capture and image processing combined with advances in lens technology has resulted in very clean and well-processed photographs processed internally with the camera's JPEG engine.  All the award-winning photographs that I saw at exhibition recently were shot in JPEG.
