I don't shoot a lot of high speed sequence shots but I found that having the camera write the Raw files to my highspeed CF card and the much smaller Jpg files to my eyefi SD card works well for me. This also allows me to transfer the jpg files to my iPad wirelessly for previewing.

Just my 2 cents.

Yeah, I've heard of a lot of people doing this and IIRC the eyefi cards are supported officially since one of the more recent Canon firmware updates.  As you say, if you're not constantly filling the buffer then SD cards are fine for shooting stills for most people.
