Since when was a lack of in-camera RAW processing a con?

I didn't realize in-camera RAW processing was so prevalent in todays cameras that it's a must have (whereby a lack of is a con). And what other m43 camera has in-camera RAW processing (I know that E-M1 has it...)? Do all other m43 cameras have in-camera RAW processing? As it's the first time I heard of a lack of it being a con...

"That said, the limitations on the in-body IS system, the tendency to close down the aperture in Program mode, and lack of in-camera Raw processing keep the GX7 from earning our highest recommendation."

The only one of these that is even remotely a concern for me is the IBIS piece, and I don't shoot video so it's essentially as irrelevant as the latter points. I never use P and I can't imagine trying to process raw files in camera, especially when I can use the built in wifi to transfer them to my iPad.
