I didn't read the whole thread, but in the A99 book Gary Friedman writes about the Raw question,

only use Raw when you need a backup or if something goes wrong (lighting)

A photographer of Nat Geog. got complains of the people processing his RAW images, they had a hard time producing the same quality of jpg's out of a Raw, the camera makes in seconds.

RAW +  jpeg was created for that very reason. You have to realize that a journalist has a special problem by virtue of being in the field. He has to trust his work to others and service bureaus have precious little time to process RAW photos. He will shoot jpeg and send it off for publishing, knowing that a base minimum quality is being had. He will keep the RAW for cover shots and award submittals and process the crap out of it.

So keep his answer in context. Jpeg isn't better than raw, but it might find a use depending on what you're doing.
