What you are saying is basically true, but NOT for the exposure metering modes. The better your exposure is in the original RAW image the more flexibility you have in working with it. A poorly exposed RAW limits what you can do with the image. The best metering mode often depends on the type of scene and often will make a major difference in what you can do with your RAW image.

Right. The RAW image comes only after the camera has processed your ISO, exposure setting, and WB setting. I think if you screw those up too badly you won't be able to do much in RAW either.

True about the exposure, but you can shoot any WB setting and have complete correction capability with a RAW file.  Getting the exposure right when taking the shot is the most important aspect of shooting relative to image quality.
