JPEGs use a small gamut color space

There's nothing wrong with shooting JPEG.  To say RAW has no meaningful advantages or downplaying the fact that they are important differences is either ignorant or self-deluding.

One feature of JPEG that I haven't spotted in this thread, (but it may be here), is that JPEGs use sRGB color space, which has a small gamut. There are visible colours that cannot be represented in JPEG, but can be represented in larger-gamut color spaces such as Adobe RGB or (bigger) Pro Photo RGB.

I agree with what you said here.
