mRaw (10mp) for wedding on 5D3 ?

Just took delivery of the 5d3, I've been shooting wedding with a 5D since it was released and have never been limited by the 12mp RAW output.

So the question is, should I use the 5D3in mRaw capture which is 10mp? I was thinking of using mRAW + Ljpeg for the backup.

My concern is that the full RAW (23mp) file might slow down my workflow to much. I use Aperture on a 27" iMac (i7 12g ram). On this set up a 12mp 5D raw file has a 2sec "loading" delay when go from image to image for editing. It doesn't sound like much, but it does slow me down, especially on my 1st cull of images from a wedding.

This is my first post so be nice!... I've been shooting professionally since 1992, sometimes full-time, sometimes part-time.
Seriously... they are all good cameras!
