Why

Thankyou for all the info. I had another thought. With the really high burst rate of the new cameras, what if I shot and Exposure Bracketed in RAW and then did the merge to 32 bit HDR in Photoshop. Then adjust WB and compress down to 16 bit again. I think this would allow the most flexibility without loss of any image quality. Assuming of course that bracketing is an option for that shot.

Why do that? The camera already captures in 14bit RAW. Nothing gained going to a 32bit merge. Also, HDR is an entirely different effect/process from color correction. What is your real output goal? If it is capture color information....an HDR workflow will look inaccurate.
