There is an interesting essay on exposure here.

In it the author argues that setting  the "correct" exposure in the camera, using your choice of metering, is only important if you are shooting jpegs.

Absolutely cool essay. It brings out the basic fact that any exposure that does not utilize the full linear range of well capacity for a given sensor is of a lower quality than otherwise possible.
